Geocache Description:

The church of St. John the Baptist and St. Pandionia, appropriated in 1572 to the Abbey of Denny, in this county, is an ancient edifice of stone, chiefly in the Early English style, and was partially repaired about the year 1840.

It consists of chancel, clerestoried nave of three bays, aisles, north transept or chapel, south porch and a lofty embattled western tower of Early English date, with a fine Decorated octagonal spire, and containing 4 bells.

The nave arcades date from the early part of the 13th century: the clerestory is Perpendicular: the north chapel has a very beautiful east window and a canopied tomb of a crusader and his lady.
St. Wendreth is said by tradition to have been buried in the church: there is a brass tablet to the Marshall family, dated 1640: the tower and nave were completely restored and the latter reseated, during the period 1875-9, at a cost of £2,000.
The church at affords 200 sittings. A lych gate was erected in 1920 in memory of the men of the parish who fell in the Great War, 1914-18· The register dates from the year 1653. The early register is lost: the Ely transcripts, which date from 1599, show that John Disbrowe married here Jane Cromwell, Oliver's younger sister, on 23 June, 1636.
