St John the Baptist

Rare late Regency church in very remote pastoral setting with original stencilling, box pews and a good monument from 1700.

Hanes yr eglwys hon

This remote church, attached to the small hamlet of Plumpton which lies between Weedon Lois and Blakesley, was rebuilt by the local significant landowner, Jesus College Oxford in the 1820s. 

From a distance you will be surprised to know that it does not date from the medieval period. It still retains its early 19th century gothic character.

Internally it speaks more of the world of Jane Austen. It retains its original box pews and the remains of interesting stencil work in the chancel.

From the earlier church comes an unusually fine marble tablet to the memory of Anne Moore (died 1683) which has a very arresting verse.

The church is now owned by the St John the Baptist Plumpton Trustees.
