A house was registered for worship in 1797 and a chapel built on the corner of the main road with Wickenby Road in 1819. It closed in October 1933 and subsequently, partly demolished, with the remainder in use as a store shed.

"The church of St. John the Baptist is a small building of stone, consisting of chancel and nave, and a turret containing one bell:

considerable improvements were made in 1895 by the removal of a west gallery and high pews, and the substitution of open seats:

a new door to the south-west entrance has also been provided and a new organ was obtained in 1897:

the church was restored in 1911 at a cost of £500:

there are 100 sittings.
