St John the Baptist Timberhill, NorwichOpen daily from 8.30 am to 5pm
St John the Baptist on Timberhill is one of the smaller medieval churches in Norwich. Although the 'long and short' work in the east wall indicates a date soon after the Norman Conquest, the present church was largely built around 1420. Once you step inside St John's, the modern, open interior is a reflection of an active and lively parish rooted in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England. Highlights include stained glass and a statue of the Virgin both by Martin Travers, a Rood beam carved in Oberammergau, a winged reredos from Germany, surviving C15 stained glass, and a late medieval chandelier, German or Flemish in origin.
