Church of St John and
St Jiles
(formerly listed as
Church of St John)
TL 62 NW: 4/97

Church, probable early C12, C13 and restored in C19. Built of flint and pebble
rubble with lacing courses of roman tile and dressings of limestone and clunch. N and
Gabled peg tile roof. The chancel is C13 with 2 repaired lancet windows in the N and
S walls and a C19 E window of 3 lancet lights. The nave is of supposed C12 origin
with 4 blank round arched recesses in the E part, the remains of a probable crossing
tower. The S doorway is early C12 of 2 orders and with scalloped capitals. The N
doorway, now blocked, is C13 with double chamfered jambs, 2 centred arches and a
moulded label. The N wall has a C19 window and a brick C16 window of 2 four-centred
lights under square head with sunk spandrels. The S wall has 3 windows - a C14
window of 2 cinque foiled lights with a quatre foil in a two-centred head, a C16
2 light window and a blocked C12 light high in the wall. The 7-cant roofs over nave
and chancel are C19. At the W end is a red brick early C19 bell tower mounted on the
original W wall and with a contemporary brick supporting wall to the E. This has grey
brick drapering and a pyramidical peg tile roof. On N, S and W faces are 2 light bell
chamber openings with label moulding heads. The S porch is C19 but has C15 cambered
and moulded tie beam with moulded braces. Graded for architectural, historic, topo-
graphical and townscape value. (RCHM 1).
