St John the Evangelist's Church, Shobdon (South Transept)

Recent Photograph of St John the Evangelist's Church (South Transept) (Shobdon)

Yes, this is a fireplace, and this “room” which occupies the South Transept is fitted with table and chairs, and was for the Bateman family. The North Transept on the opposite side of the nave was for the servants and without a fireplace! Both however had separate doorways from the surrounding Shobdon Court, separated from the grounds of the church by a wrought iron fence.

The accompanying photograph of a south view of St John the Evangelist's Church shows the exterior of the transept.
