Storridge Church, An Historical Tour


The somewhat straggling parish of Storridge was originally part of the large parish of Cradley. In the middle of the 19th century concern was expressed for the population of the hamlet of Storridge, who had to walk a considerable distance to attend the church in Cradley. This concern, coupled with a desire to commemorate the Luxmoore family in some fitting manner, led to the building, in Cradley stone, of a church at Storridge and the designation of Storridge as a separate ecclesiastical parish.
