Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded before 1200, and we understand it is still open.

Both Pevsner and Mike Salter, in his booklet The Old Parish Churches of Herefordshire (1998) say that St John the Baptist's Church was largely rebuilt by Nicholson & Son in the 19th century, apart from the tower, squat and pyramidal; the rebuilding did however preserve a chancel arch of c.1200 and south doorway. Apparently the new church was built around the tower, as its base is now set inside the church.

Pevsner waxes lyrical about the font, which he says is "charmingly decorated with bits of foliage, initials, and the date" (1689). There are two 13th century effigies "under trefoiled heads" to the left and right of the altar.

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
