Thanks for all your information.

I was in Stoke area last weekend and walked past the boarded up 
church and suspected it was St John's, but could not be sure as I was 
not aware it is redundant.

I am sure we all agree that it is a rather sorry state of affairs, 
and hopefully a new home will one day be found the bells. A few big 
towers in the Leeds area spring to mind....
