St John the Baptist, High Toynton
St John the Baptist, High Toynton
The present church was built from designs by the Architect Ewan Christian, at a cost of 1,200. It was built in 1872 to replace an earlier one built in 1772. The fabric of the church is local greenstone and is in the Early English style. It consists of chancel, nave, vestry, south porch, and at the south-west angle a low tower with octagonal belfry containing two bells. However, the tower has had to have metal ties added to it to hold it together.

The carved stone and marble reredos was erected as a memorial to Thomas Terrett Taylor by his sister, the wife of Reverend T. S. Hughes. The registers date from 1715. The earliest documentary record of a church on this site is 1231.
