St John the Baptist, Church Lane, Cottered, Buntingford, Hertfordshire SG9 9PZ View on map

Medieval parish church dating from 14th century. Spire rebuilt in 1757 and church restored by Edmund Buckle in 1886. Its unusual loftiness is accentuated by the absence of aisles. Notable features are a fine grey Derbyshire marble font of 1739, some remaining medieval glass and east window by Clayton & Bell. Neo-classical monument to Rev Anthony Trollope, grandfather of the novelist.
