ST. JOHN'S COMMANDERY
This small building, whilst unspectacular in itself, is actually a very unusual survival. It is a Chapel built by the Knights Hospitallers in the 13th Century. Unusually it doesnt have any Templar connections having been a Hospitallers foundation.
In the 16th Century the Chapel was converted into a barn and it remained that way until very recently. The interior has dramatic wooden beams and an ornamented plaster ceiling.
Today it is owned by English Heritage and is open to view from the outside at any time and occasionally is open to view the interior.
