St John the Baptist church, Latton
St John the Baptist church, Latton
A fine old church not far from the main road. Unfortunately it was locked so I couldn't see inside. The church, parts of which are 12th century, is Grade I listed LinkExternal link

The churchyard contains several tombs or monuments to members of the once-prosperous Habgood family of London and Latton. The story of their 19th century fortunes and misfortunes can be found here LinkExternal link

This church has an interesting connection with Saskatchewan, Canada. It seems a pioneer priest took with him a stained glass window from this church when he emigrated in 1912. The window was in pieces and was painstakingly reconstructed and installed in All Saints Anglican Church in the town of Watrous LinkExternal link
