John the Baptist
Chancel, north chapel, south transept, twin naves under one roof, north porch and west
tower with broached shingled spire. Built of flints. the nave arcade is Transitional
Norman, the walls of the nave and the remainder of the church C13, but the roof of the
nave was rebuilt as a single span with crown-posts, probably in the C15. The whole
building was restored by Sir Gilbert Scott in 1867 but is still a medieval building of
considerable character and charm. It is also rather large for a downland village.
