Church of St John


Parish church, of Decorated style. 1855, enlarged 1885. Cruciform church with
north vestry and south porch, the south transept being raised as a tower. West
country limestone with Bath stone dressings; cill bands, plinth, stepped
buttresses: traceried coupled lights (three at the east and four at the west).
Steep slate roof. The tower has two stages, a staircase turret, and an octagonal
spire. The interior has original furnishings. Of special interest is a series
of medallions of Flemish stained glass, inserted into the glazing of the windows
in the form of circles, ovals, rectangles with square or cambered leads. The
medallions represent themes from Christian iconography, and one of clear and
tinted glass, the treatment being of classical style.
