St John Timberhill
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: 1500 candelabrum, 11th century stonework
The striking reredos is also from Oberammergau, but above the altar is the one remaining medieval feature in the church, a German candelabrum dating to around 1500.
St John is open daily. It isn't what I'd call a compelling historic church, but there are features of interest, especially the 11th century stonework visible in the external walls.
