CHURCH OF ST JOHN THE BAPTIST

DESCRIPTION + /

Originally built circa 1340 as the church of a Commandery of the Knights Hospitallers, on the circular pattern of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem. It is one of only 5 in the country to survive into modern times. It was extensively restored by Carpenter in 1850, together with the apsidal chancel. The circular building consists of an hexagonal nave with a surrounding circular aisle. Few of the earlier fittings survive apart from a roughly cut font which is probably 11th century.
