Churches (50) : St John the Baptist, Lea Marston

The church of St John the Baptist in the Warwickshire village of Lea Marston has been in existence since the mid-13th century at least. Parts of the nave date from this era. The nave was modified and lengthened in the following two centuries.

The tower to the North West is a more modern addition though being added in 1876 when the chancel was also built.

Although in an idyllic location nowadays for most of the twentieth century the church was in the imposing shadow of Hams Hall power station and it's various cooling towers.
