Tamworth - St John the Baptist

A large neoclassical town church of 1829-30 by Joseph Potter (architect of St Mary’s College, Oscott), which was remodelled and extended and given a distinctly post-War character in 1954.

2018 UPDATE: The church has undergone a reordering since the writing of this entry.
