History and description
In the early 19th century the inhabitants of Brown Edge were miners who worked at Chatterley Whitfield and other mines, a few miles away. The benefactors who gave land for the church, and contributed to its building, included the owners of these mines, notably the mine-owner Hugh Henshall Williamson (1785–1867).
The church, designed by J. C. Trubshaw, was built in 1844, using local stone. It was consecrated on 1 June 1844 by the Bishop of Lichfield, John Lonsdale.
The tower, with a spire, was built by Ward and Son in 1854. It is built against the north-east of the church, and is described in the listing text as "Iconoclastic Romanesque".
