St John the Evangelist's Church, Purton

Recent Photograph of St John the Evangelist's Church (Purton)

Many of you will probably question my sanity, but I found this small church of 1874 (Waller & Son) to be rather attractive, especially outside. [Ed: not at all! It's delightful!]  A sign by the gate proclaimed the church to be open, and the number of visitors in the Visitors' Book is truly amazing. If, like me, a proportion of visitors also shell out GBP1 for a small history, then this church whilst devoid of any interest on the tourist trails must do far better than some of the grander more famous but locked churches which we all come across.
