St. John the Baptist, Tisbury

July 20, 2015

St. John the Baptist, Tisbury

A wonderful church which features in ‘1000 Best Churches’ and quite rightly so. It is in a wonderful position beside the River Nadder. It is open each day and well worth seeing. There is a guide book and some ‘bats’ to carry around to help visitors understand the wonderful things to see here. Also some books and prayer cards for sale and some free Bible notes.

The church children have some of their work displayed and an area to use. It is notable how shiny everything is here. This is a church which is well used and well loved. The visitors book showed some 46 entries this year so far but there must be many more.I found a good folder about the World War 1 and 2 casualties from the town, including one woman. The visitor gets a real sense of how church buildings are altered over time here. The chancel has some glass doors and has become in effect a separate worship area.A lovely church well worth a visit.
