St Mark's Church, Basford, is in Basford, Staffordshire, England. It is an active Anglican parish church, in the deanery of Newcastle-under-Lyme, the archdeaconry of Stoke-on-Trent, and the diocese of Lichfield.[1]


St Mark's was built in 1914–15, and designed by the Lancaster architects Austin and Paley. At that time only the east end and three bays of the nave and aisles were completed; the west wall was intended to be temporary.[2] In 1928–29 the same practice added new vestries at a cost of £1,450.[3] The west wall was rebuilt, and the rest of the church was completed in 1971, by Charles R. Lewis.[2]
