The Church of St John the Evangelist

Our lovely Norman church is set in a peaceful and elevated setting close to Pauntley Court.  Pauntley Court was the home of the Whittington family from the 14th century and believed to be the birthplace of Dick Whittington, who was presumably baptised here in Pauntley Church.  The church is well-known for its beautiful south doorway of the Dymock school of carving.
