St. John the Baptist, Royston

St. John the Baptist, Royston

DSCN0392In the market town of Royston sits St.John the Baptist – often known as Royston Priory. The church is open everyday and has glass doors at the west end so that people can see inside. The external notice board doesn’t mention that the church is open but there is a notice at the west end.This says; ‘Church open, please respect the building.’

Inside, I found a guide book and a display of both church groups and mission projects that the church supports. There is quite a bit of children’s work on show, as well as ‘quiet bags’ for children. There didn’t seem to be a visitors book but there is a prayer board and votive stand to use.

On the altar in the Lady Chapel, is an open book – ‘Saints and Pilgrims’ by the Diocese of St. Alban’s. This was open at a recent saint’s day. This is a nice idea.


The church website can be found at but there is no visitor information on it.

I rate St. John’s as good for the purposes of this study and recommend a visit to this lovely church.
