St John the Evangelist
OX29 9UD

St John the Evangelist is Victorian built in 1868/9 to replace an 18th century church close by. It was built in the French Gothic style with prominent buttresses and an unusual bell turret. The font is from the earlier church. The church was designed by C.C. Rolfe when he was 21, for his father Reverend G.C. Rolfe, and had joined the firm of his uncle, William Wilkinson in Witney. It is described in its listing as "as eccentric and exuberant style in Gothic."    

The grant will help fund a project to replace the failing floor at the west end.

St Mary

The tall Saxon tower of St Mary's was not always at the west end of the church as the original nave was dismantled in the late Norman period and the Norman chancel became the nave, with a new chancel added in the late 13th century.
