St John the Baptist

The church with a view, and a friendly welcome. Situated 1,000ft above sea level, on the side of Titterstone Clee Hill, with stunning views towards Worcestershire and Wales, St John’s was built in the 1840's by Thomas Botfield, ironmaster, to serve as a poorman's church for the quarrymen, miners and farmworkers. It has unusually decorative cast-iron windows, a cast-iron communion rail and tiles believed to be Minton. It is open daily and has refreshments available. The approach from the A4117 is up steep steps or a sloping path.

Dates for 2019:

  •  Harvest Service at 3pm on Sunday 29th September - it will be followed by an auction of produce and a shared tea at the nearby Doddington Village Hall. Money raised from the auction will go to WaterAid and any non-perishables donated will be given to a local foodbank.
  • Carol Service on Sunday 15 December at 3pm and we will have Cleobury Country Brass to help us raise the roof! Mince pies and sherry/teas will be served in church after the service.
