St Johnís church is a wonderful small church in South Yorkshire, overlooking grand views of the Dearne Valley.
The church was built by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1856 for Sir Joseph Copley. It was intended as a decorated version of the Early English church at Skelton near York. Although some of the external stonework detail has eroded, the fine carving inside by J Birnie Philip is as crisp as ever. There is painted decoration in the roof and original furniture.
The church is no longer used for worship but there are various events held each year, including Flower Festivals, craft events and concerts, by the Friends of Cadeby Church and The Churches Conversation Trust.
The church is in the care of The Churches Conservation Trust.
