St. John the Baptist, Inglesham, Wiltshire, England



St. John the Baptist at Inglesham is now cared for by the   Churches Conservation Trust  and is quite extraordinary.  It is small and doesn't have a spire or tower, so viewed from the outside you may not expect much.  But go inside the church and you are immediately taken back hundreds of years - this church managed mainly to avoid those Victorian restorations which seemed to drastically change the interiors.  There are box-pews, a few memorials and wall paintings abound.  A saxon carving of the Madonna and Child is another joy to see.  How lucky we are in Wiltshire to be surrounded by so many magnificent buildings and how grateful we should be to the organisations who look after them, not forgetting the individuals who daily come and unlock them so we can visit.

There are various leaflets available inside the church, including a brief history written by Anthony Barnes.  Dates and information shown on our web pages are taken from this leaflet.

The layout of the church with its pews, screens and no lighting proved a difficult combination when it came to taking photographs of the inside.  The photographs in the history leaflet show how they should be taken!

The church of St. John the Baptist is a Grade I listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the  British Listed Buildings  website.  More information about Inglesham can be found at the  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
