View of the South elevation of the church of St John the Baptist, in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. It was built between 1791 and 1795 by Charles Watson and has a large tower with an octagonal top section and which is capped with a dome shaped roof. The church is situated in St John’s square, a small square in Wakefield which is architecturally very important because it is one of the only examples of Georgian town planning in Wakefield.
