St. John the Baptist Church, Bathwick
St. John the Baptist Church, Bathwick
This church was consecrated in 1862. The following information is adapted from the church website:

"The north aisle of the church was built in 1861 by C. G. Giles to provide a place of worship for the “labouring classes” of Bathwick. From the start S. John’s was influenced by the Catholic Movement within the Church of England and attracted people from all over Bath. The large south aisle by A. Blomfield was added in 1871 to accommodate the large congregation.

The Baptistery was added in 1879, with a beautiful mosaic floor, by the Venetian firm of Salviati, with the sea, net and fishes, and the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.

During the incumbency of Fr. James Dunn, Vicar from 1880 to 1919, the church was beautified by more mosaic and wrought-iron screens. Between 1896 and 1902, the Stations of the Cross were painted by the artist Edward Frampton RA; they are copies of those in Antwerp Cathedral and stained glass was fitted.

In the early 1920’s the Calvary, with the attendant figures of S. John the Evangelist and the Virgin Mary, by Sir Ninian Comper, were added to the chancel screen, in memory of Fr. Dunn. In the 1940’s the figures of S. John the Baptist and the Virgin and Child, also by Sir Ninian Comper, were placed on the screen, in memory of Fr. Charles Harris, Vicar from 1919 to 1936."
