St. John the Baptist, Hannington, Wiltshire, England



The church of St. John the Baptist at Hannington is surrounded by beautiful countryside.  In fact we had to go four times before we could gain access to the grounds, due to the surrounding farmland being closed because of a foot-and-mouth outbreak.  The church itself looks to be in good condition, and has some lovely stone carvings of faces around it.

The day we visited in July 2001 was a hot (for England!) day.  The only sounds to be heard were the cows in a field next to the churchyard, all kinds of birds and insects, and the occasional tractor passing.  As if to emphasize how deep we were into the countryside rabbits darted across in front of us as we took photographs, and later when we returned to our car we noticed a deer in a neighbouring field.  We sat and watched to see what it would do.  He came closer and gracefully hopped over the shoulder-high fence as though it were just a few inches tall.  This handsome creature came within two metres of the car and hopped over the next fence and disappeared into some trees.  What a wonderful site he was.

The church of St. John the Baptist is a Grade II* listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the  Historic England  website.

More information about Hannington can be found at the excellent  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
