St John the Baptist on Timberhill is one of the smaller medieval churches in Norwich. Although the ‘long and short’ work in the east wall indicates a date soon after the Norman Conquest, the present church was largely built around 1420. Once you step inside St John’s, the modern, open interior is a reflection of an active and lively parish rooted in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England. Highlights include stained glass and a statue of the Virgin both by Martin Travers, a Rood beam carved in Oberammergau, a winged reredos from Germany, surviving C15 stained glass, and a late medieval chandelier, German or Flemish in origin.
