Chapel of St John the Baptist
This remarkable private chapel was built by the redoubtable Mrs Harris just over a hundred years ago to the designs of the leading Arts and Crafts architect Sir Guy Dawber, one of the founders of the CPRE. She assembled a glittering array of artists to realise her dream led by Louis Davis for the glass at the east end and George Bankart for the barrel-vaulted plaster ceiling (do notice the birds flying across the ceiling). The chapel was built over a well which can be picked out on the roadside.
The Friends have undertaken a programme of repairs which included the rebuilding of Dawber’s gates into the churchyard and the cleaning and repair of the chandeliers.
