Open almost every day, the church of St John the Baptist’s head is one of only three churches to bear this name. While the saint’s head was never on display here, it’s thought that a shrine, complete with a life-sized alabaster carving of the head was kept here. Although the carving was likely destroyed in the reformation, the church's impressively restored rood screen and more recent stained glass windows can still be admired. The church itself is a slightly unusual shape, having a short but heavily buttressed tower, which is thought to be unfinished.
The rest of the walk is perfect for an easy stroll along quiet lanes, paths and tracks which offer rolling views inland.
