St John the Baptist, Piddington
We welcome everybody to join our friendly congregation and share in our traditional style of worship, with choir accompanied by pipe organ. There is a children's play area if you have younger family members.
Our attractive church is dedicated to St John the Baptist and was built in about 1290, although it is believed that there may have been a place of worship on this site prior to that date. The church is laid out in the traditional cross shape, but has been extensively restored and rebuilt with additions over the subsequent centuries. It is a Grade 2 listed building.
The tower rising to a spire was rebuilt following a rate levy in the Parish in 1847 and on the east face of the tower is the church clock, more than a 100 years old, believed to have been made by Dent and Co., who manufactured "Big Ben".
A number of trees, both ancient and newly planted, frame the open views in three directions from the Church which occupies a surprisingly commanding position over the neighbouring countryside. There is access to a number of country paths you might like to explore. Walkers are welcome! Come as you are.
