St John the Baptist Church

Few people can avoid being struck by the magnificence of the church when anywhere in the area. It occupies a lofty and dominant position over the village and the landscape. The church of Kings Norton is an unforgetable building, unique in style and character; it is one of the earliest and the best churches of the gothic revival.

The Original Church building

Although we know of the existance of a medieval church we know very little information surrounding it. There is no record of its appearance except its basic structure. It consisted of a nave, tower, chancel and north and south aisles.
