Church of St John the Baptist




Parish Church. Largely as rebuilt in 1717, but with C16 tower,
and chancel added in 1788. Coursed and squared rubble to
tower, the rest of brick on stone plinth, with tiled roofs.
West tower, nave and chancel. West tower of two stages with very
low door with chamfered jambs and flat-arched hoodmould.
Three-light Perpendicular window over, and 3-light opening to
bellchamber above. Angle buttresses and embattled parapet.
Nave of six bays, the outer bays to east and west in south
elevation with doorways with moulded architraves, and pediment
to east. Eastern doorway also in north. Windows are
round-arched with stone springers and keys, and have
Y-tracery. Smaller windows with similar detailing over
doorways. Moulded eaves band, and stone plinth which is
possibly a survivor from the C16 church. Chancel projects only
slightly from line of nave, and has apsidal east end
containing Palladian window with moulded cornice and brackets
to sill.
