More about this scene

Caption for Willenhall, St Giles's Parish Church C1965: The Reverend William Moreton was vicar here from 1795 to 1834. He was addicted to cock fighting, and had his own cockpit at the Church House. He used to preach with the church door open so as not to miss fellow cock fighters passing by on their way to matches at Darlaston Fields - and would cut short his sermon to follow them.
