Blockhouse

BLOCKHOUSE, an extra-parochial liberty, in the city, union, and county of Worcester; containing 1280 inhabitants. A district church, dedicated to St. Paul, was consecrated in 1845; it is a handsome brick structure with a small square tower, erected at a cost of £2200, raised by subscription and a grant from the Church Building Society. The living is a perpetual curacy in the patronage of the Bishop, with a net income of £150. On each side of the entrance to the church stands a Sunday school.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
