Thanks, Rob, for checking. Attached is an earlier map (1887) from old-maps.co.uk (http://www.old-maps.co.uk/maps.html), a valuable source if you're not aware of it. Curious that St. Michael's Church is labelled St. Chad's Church. I'll have to check the history to see why. Cheers Cheers Barry

I've wondered that myself, but I've just checked again in that late 1800s history book, and it simply states in the introductory pages that; "Stoke church is an ancient stone edifice, erected in the 13th century, and dedicated to St. Chad." I can find no other reference. It'll be interesting to find out.

Rob, all that I can deduce is from two Old Maps images. The church was described as St. Chad's in 1906, and St. Michael's in 1913. Any rededication seems to have happened in the intervening years.
