St John’s Church new was commissioned under the architect John Garlive -the man who designed Booths Hall for Peter Legh. The church was built in Georgian style using local brick with stone dressings and consecrated on 24th June 1744.
The Church was recently re-ordered bringing the building back to its original style makingthe most of the beauty in its simplicity.
It now has a thriving cafe, a wonderful organ, 8 functioning bells and an unparalleled view of Knutsford from the top of the Church tower.
Visitors will be allowed to climb the tower but should note there are 88 steps and the ascent is not for the fainthearted!
