The village of Whitton sits above the Humber. Its tower and tower arch are Norman.

The rest is the work of W Bassett Smith in the 1890s.

St Johnís is that rarest of things in the area Ė an unlocked church.

St John's fine tower dates from the Norman period, though Pevsner considers that the bell-openings are later.
