Plans for Kitchen and Toilet facilities at St. John the Baptist.


We’re now actively exploring the provision of a fully accessible toilet, and a fit for purpose small kitchen/drinks point and servery at St. John’s, to extend our hospitality to visitors, worshippers and audiences. During May, architect’s drawings outlining several options for the location of these facilities will be on display at the back of church. You are warmly invited to have a look and leave your comments and questions. St. John’s is both Tideswell’s church, and a national treasure, and we’d like to know your views on the proposed developments. It is envisaged that these plans will form one part of a larger suite of works, including essential maintenance to the chancel roof, south porch and tower, and a complete re-wire and re-lighting of the building.
