Parish Church Schools.

ALTHOUGH the schools in connection with the Parish Church ought, on every account, to take precedence of the others; yet, by an inadvertent omission, they come to be mentioned last. The first part was built in 1829, by a grant from the Lichfield Diocesan Society, aided by local subscriptions, together amounting to £400. The second part was added in 1843, and the necessary funds raised as follows:

£ 8. d.
Grants from the Lords of the Treasury . 180 0 0
National Society . . . . . 105 0 0
Lichfield Diocesan Society . . . 30 0 0

The following is the total cost of these schools :
