Search Saint John the Baptist Churchyard:

The present building is the result of eight centuries of development, repairs and restoration. It retains both its historical qualities (it is a Grade 1 listed building) as well as trying to meet the needs of a worshipping Christian community in the early 21st century.

In the late 19th century the churchyard was extended on land given by Edward Peach. The Eastern end was marked by line of elm trees. Until this time churchyard did not extend North of the building. Cottages to the West of the church were demolished at about this time and the land taken into the churchyard. The earliest date on a memorial in churchyard is 1851. Prior to this most burials were probably in Paston. All burial records up to 1853 are kept at Paston church.
