Exterior view of Terrington St John's Church in Norfolk, situated about two and a half miles from Terrington St Clement's Church.

"The architectural evidence would place its erection in the reign of Edward the First, although much of the present building appears to belong to the 15th century. It is a Church of considerable size, consisting of chancel, nave, north and south aisles, mostly Decorated, and a Perpendicular tower at the south-west corner, originally separate from the nave. There is a fine Decorated west doorway, and large Perpendicular windows at the east and west ends. In the aisles are some Decorated windows of elegant design, and the buttresses which are of the same style, have triangular headings. The clere-story is composed of circular windows, filled with tracery, alternating with pointed ones. In the chancel are two 'low-side' windows."

Text by the Rector of Diss C R Manning from the book 'The Fen and Marshland Churches'.
