St. John the Baptist, Kennerleigh, Devon


The church of St. John the Baptist is a building of stone, in the Later Perpendicular style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and a western tower containing 3 bells; the first is plain but ancient; the second has a reversed inscription in unusual characters and the third is an alphabet bell; all three are cracked: the church was repaired and newly slated in 1847, the chancel being restored by the rector about the same time: a memorial window was afterwards inserted to the Rev. William Owen Tripp: in 1895 the interior of the church was restored, re-floored and re-seated at a cost of £350: there are 100 sittings.
