Church of St John the Evangelist and All Saints, Grade II* listed, 14thC origins. OS lists 4 components: Bolt - presumably at top of tower or turret; Flagstaff - present and correct; Centre - presumably of the tower; and Centre of Turret - self-explanatory.

St John the Evangelist & All Saints. Grade II* Listed. Tower of 3 stages, with tall plinth, string courses, the top with gargoyles, then battlemented parapets; full-height buttresses slightly offset from corners, with diagonal applied shaft bases for now-missing pinnacles; 3-light earlier C15 traceried windows in hollowed recesses with headstop labels to the intended transept arches; to stage 2 on north and south sides are 2-light flat-arched windows in recesses without labels, and to third stage all round are matching 2-light pointed-arched windows; the windows to stages 2 and 3 south side set in rendered panels and fitted with ornamental pierced stone frets, whereas the others have louvre baffles: on south-east corner an octagonal-plan stair turret taller than remainder of tower, crowned with flagmast. Nave has plinth, offset corner buttresses and bay buttresses to north side, with battlemented parapets over plain string course; the side windows match those to stage 1 of tower; the west window a wider 3-light window in deep recess with moulded headstop label, under which is an elaborately moulded pointed arched joorway, new blocked, with tablet-flowers to jamb mouldings, set in rectangular recess with carved spandrils, no label.
