St John the Baptist Church, Mount Bures
St John the Baptist Church, Mount Bures
The church is described as Norman, it is built of brick and stone with a tiled roof with Norman features. There are no records which can date the church with certainty, however a manuscript of 1705 tells of a stone over the porch. The document states "at the top of the porch on the outside there was formerly a stone about eight inches square bearing the date MLIX (1059).
In 1770 the spire was taken down and the tower heightened. The church was restored in 1875 and again in 1908 and 1936.
During the 1875 restoration, Thomas Harris took down the dilapidated central tower and replaced the 1770 parapet tower with the "Sussex" type beech construction which we see today.
