St John the Baptist's Church, Chipping Sodbury

Recent Photograph of St John the Baptist's Church (Chipping Sodbury)

“The Chapel of Ease [of Chipping Sodbury] was dedicated by the Bishop of Worcester in 1284 to St John the Baptist (SMR 7637; DoE 1983: 5/158). The original chapel was much smaller than the present church. It did not have a tower, but probably had a small bellcote or turret and was built in early English style”.[1]
