|Overview of Church:||Built in 1812/13 to the design of James Elmes, St. John?s is a proprietary chapel provided to overcome the overcrowding in the city?s parish churches. Although part of the Church of England it was built and run as a commercial venture. With its three-decker pulpit and gallery box pews it is a good example of a Georgian church. Declared redundant in 1973 it is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.|
