Whitbourne, St John the Baptist Church
Whitbourne, St John the Baptist Church
The largest of five churches in the parish of Greater Whitbourne, St John the Baptist is located directly beside Whitbourne Court, a moated medieval Bishop's Palace used by the Bishop of Hereford as a summer residence (now a much restored private residence).
The church interior has been much restored in the Victorian period, and includes some lovely 19th century stained glass, but the real treasure of the church is the ancient Norman font.

The church consists of a nave, chancel, and aisle, primarily in Norman style, with the addition of a west tower in Perpendicular Gothic.
