St John's Church, High Legh, is in the village of High LeghCheshire, England. It is an active Anglican parish church in the deanery of Knutsford, the archdeaconry of Macclesfield, and the diocese of Chester. Its benefice was united with that of St Paul, Over Tabley until 1 March 2011. Each parish now has its own benefice. The church is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building.

Architecture

The church is constructed in ashlar stone and brick, with a tiled roof. On the exterior of the church is apparent timber framing with rendered infill. The whole of the interior of the church is brick-faced. The church's plan consists of a narthex at the west end, a three-bay nave with a south porch and a vestry projecting to the south, and a chancel. The west end consists of the narthex at ground level, and a two-stage tower above it. The projecting west front of the narthex has a central window with fourcasements and a two-light window on each side. Above the window is a timber-framed gable. The lower stage of the tower contains a bay window with four mullioned andtransomed lights on the front and similar two-light windows on the sides. Above the bay window is another timber-framed gable. The top stage consists of a brick belfry withlouvred bell openings. At the top of the tower is a double-pitched roof with a lead spire. The south front of the church is clad with close studding, and it contains four-light windows with Perpendicular-style tracery. The vestry has a half-hipped roof and a six-light casement window. In the chancel is an east window.

An extension, in keeping with the design and appearance of the original building, was added to the south side of the vestry in 1993. This was enlarged in 2010 and now includes a parish room, kitchen, toilet and storage facilities. (Reference Wikipedia)

This is the only Church I know that has a well in it's grounds. Well worth the visit whilst you are here.

“If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first at churchmicro@gmail.com so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication. There is also a Church Micro Stats & Information page found via the Bookmark list”
