St John the Baptist, Burford, Oxfordshire - 19th June 2005

The building of the present church began in the late 1100's, but it is highly probable that an earlier church existed in Saxon times. The basic cruciform layout was in place by about 1250.

With the growth of the town, largely due to the wool trade, the income of the church also grew, and the next 200 years saw various extentions and alterations making it now one of the largest churches in Oxfordshire.

The church was finally completed in the late 1400's. In the 1800's the interior was re-organised, and in the late 1800's the church went through an extensive restoration.
