ⓘ St John the Baptists Church, East Farndon

St John the Baptists Church is an Anglican church, the parish church of East Farndon, Northamptonshire. It is a Grade I listed building and stands in the centre of the village of East Farndon.

There is no reference to a church or priest in the entry for the parish in the Domesday Book, which was compiled in 1086. This may indicate the absence of a church building at that stage or, alternatively, only the absence of a resident priest.

The main structure of the present building was erected in the 13th and 14th centuries. The church consists of a nave, chancel, south aisle and west tower. A detailed description appears on the Historic England website

East Farndon is part of a "united benefice" along with Arthingworth, Harrington and Oxendon. Each parish retains its own church building.
