Another view of SY0283 : Church of St John in the Wilderness. The tower is C14, but most of the church was rebuilt between 1926-37. "In the Wilderness" because of its relative isoaltion; the church guide recounts that the roads to the villages it served were often impassable in winter. In 1788, the building was in such a state that the vicar petitioned for it to be pulled down; in the event, the nave and chancel were demolished. LinkExternal link
