St. John the Baptist Church (Croxton Kerrial)

St. John the Baptist Church is the parish church of the Leicestershire village of Croxton Kerrial.

Basically a mediaeval church, in the Perpendicular style, it has a chancel built of the local ironstone, while the rest is grey oolite.

There is a central tower, with eight pinnacles.

Gilbert Scott carried out a restoration in the 1860s.

The church has a wonderful collection of forty five pre-Reformation benches, which were brought from the nearby Croxton Abbey at the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
