St John the Baptist's Church, Chaceley (The Altar)

Recent Photograph of St John the Baptist's Church (The Altar) (Chaceley)

The 14th century east window was reset after rebuilding the chancel from the base of the windows in 1882. The fragment of the crucifixion inset into the window is also ancient.

This is indeed an old church - there are Norman tiles on the altar, and note the curious aumbrey to its right. Although out of focus in this photo, there is also a piscina set in the south wall, just below the south window, where there is such a lovely floral display.
