St John

St John's has an unusual looking exterior as it has a slim tower in comparison to the nave.

About this church

It is connected to the body of the church by an odd little extension called the Priest's House, which has a staircase that allows access to the external nave roof.

Adding to the distinctive look are the clerestory windows, which are alternatively circular and round headed.

The interior of the church is plain and simple, with 17th century features that include the roof of about 1688 and a font dating from 1632.
