St John's Ceiling Rose
St John's Ceiling Rose

The ceiling of St John's was originally plastered and sported three large rosettes along its main axis. When this began to collapse in 1927 it was taken down and replaced with varnished pine matchboarding. Only the central rosette was retained. The ceiling has been subsequently painted. Gilding was added to the rosette during the 2003 restoration. [Information from a book by Alan H J Green published by the Churches Conservation Trust in 2006].
