The church of St Bartholomew at Blore

St Bartholomew,Blore,Staffordsh. Blore village was the home of the Bassett family from the mid 15th century and they were responsible for the hall and much of the church and its contents which include the alabaster tomb of William Bassett V (d 1601). The family are buried in a vault beneath the tomb, though unfortunately this was robbed in the early 19th century and the lead coffins stolen, so the vault is now sealed.

Beneath the north aisle is a 15th century brass commemorating William Bassett II and his wife Joan, and there is some notable old stained glass.
