St John the Baptist Parish Church

Description

There has been a church on this site since Anglo-Saxon times.  The current building dates from around 1270 . It was built next to the nearby Augustinian Abbey (the remains of the Abbey can be seen just the other side of the bypass).  The tower collapsed in a storm in 1633, and although the tower was eventually rebuilt by 1655 the church needed more work. It was restored between 1850 and 1870 to its present magnificent state. Well worth a visit (open weekdays 9 am till 2 pm).
