Rudgwick – St John

This small chapel was built in 1913 (parish website) in the main settlement in the southern part of the parish of Rudgwick, the hamlet of Tisman’s Common.  Hidden behind a house and closely surrounded by trees, it is built of brick with minimal gothic detail.  Most prominent is the disproportionately large porch with its pointed entrance arch.

The interior has a dark trussed and boarded roof and the windows are all filled with clear glass.  There is no division, making it a single space.  It has been remodelled quite recently, which has involved the introduction of new chairs and of plain fittings.  The walls have been redecorated in an ochre colour.
