Search St. John the Baptist Churchyard:

St John the Baptist is the parish church of the villages of Needingworth and Holywell; there has been a church on this site since 990 AD. The present church dates from the 13th century (the tower was added in the 16th century, reputedly acquired from Ramsey Abbey). In the churchyard stands the Holy Well, the spring which gives the surrounding village its name, venerated for its healing properties since pre-Christian times. Every year on the weekend before 24th June (Feast of St John the Baptist) the centre-piece of the Patronal Festival is the Well-dressing, one of the very few examples of this art form to be found south of Derbyshire.
