Feckenham

 

Anglican: St John the Baptist


The church has traces of its Norman origins but the building has work from several later periods including the 13th century north arcade. It was much restored in the 19th century by William Butterfield who rebuilt the chancel in 1853 and by Henry Day who restored the nave in 1866.
There was a further restoration in 1903/05 by C Ford Whitcombe. 

This church is usually open during daylight hours.
