Staffordshire Cemeteries Saint Luke - Leek

The Parish church of Saint Luke was consecrated on the 19th December 1848, three years after the formation of a new Ecclesiastical parish.

The tower was added in 1854 and the chancel extended in 1873.

In 1996 extensive renovations were done to the interior of the building.

St Luke's church, on the eastern side of the town, is a handsome stone edifice in the decorated style, erected in 1848, for a district parish, formed in 1845 comprising part of the township of Leek and Lowe and the whole of Tittisworth. The perpetual curacy is in the alternate patronage of the Crown and the Bishop of Lichfield, and in the incumbency of the Rev Benjamin Pidcock, BA.
From History, Gazetteer and Directory of Staffordshire, William White, Sheffield, 1851
