LOUND CHURCH LANE TM 59 NW 2/24 Church of St. John the Baptist 27.11.54 II* Parish church. Medieval; restored mid and late C19, with further work to the interior in 1914 by Sir J.M. Comper. Nave, chancel, west tower, south porch, small north vestry. Flint rubble, largely faced with knapped flint; stone dressings. Slated roofs. Round tower, rebuilt probably C15: the lower part contains fragments of carved C12 stonework, the upper portion has an admixture of red brick. 2-light belfry openings to each quarter, flat brick parapet. Nave probably C13, although there has been much later re-facing, especially on the south side: Y-traceried windows, with 2 broad lancets at the west end. C14 south doorway. C15 porch: hoodmould to entrance arch with lion label stops and shields in the spandrels. Late C14 2-bay chancel with 2-light side windows and a 4-light east window, all restored; to the south a delicately- moulded Priest's doorway. Interior. C19 boarded ceilings to nave and chancel. In the east reveal of the south-east chancel window there is a cinquefoil-headed piscina, with drop-sill sedilia adjacent. Late C14 octagonal font, the bowl panels carved alternately with lions and with angels bearing shields; there are angels to the bowl underside and 4 lions against the stem. The bowl and stem have small traces of original red and blue colouring. The font stands on an inscribed base. Early C17 pulpit. The rood screen retains C15 tracery and rood beam but is otherwise much restored; the gilded and painted vaulted rood loft with rood and 4 flanking figures is by Comper. Other work by Comper includes the reredos to the nave side-altar, the organ case and the font cover: all are richly gilded and in the Gothic style.
