About this image
View from the nave showing the High Altar, chancel and rood screen, and on the right the carved eagle lectern.
The Church of St John dates from the 13th Century. The north aisle was added in 1865-9 by Sir George Gilbert Scott. The church holds many monuments and tombs of the Frecheville Family, the local lords of the manor.
Much of the building is of Norman origin and only fragments of the church at the time of the Doomsday survey have survived.
