Plumpton, St John

Georgian village church, Plumpton

This remote church, attached to the small hamlet of Plumpton which lies between Weedon Lois and Blakesley, was rebuilt by the local significant landowner, Jesus College Oxford in the 1820's.

It still retains it'e early 19th century gothic character. From a distance you will be surprised to know that it did not date from the Medieval period. Internally it speaks more of the world of Jane Austen. It retains it's original box pews and the remains of interesting stencil work in the chancel.

From the earlier church comes an unusually fine marble tablet to the memory of Anne Moore (died 1683) which has a very arresting verse.

The church is now owned by the St John The Baptist Plumpton Trustees. It holds at least four services a year at Easter, The Patronal Festival, Harvest Festival and Christmas.
