He was Air Officer Commanding RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain and is generally credited with playing a crucial role in Britain's defence, and hence, the defeat of Adolf Hitler's plan to invade Britain.

St John's red brick church ruin

The church ruin was built in 1632. A rare example, very few churches built with red bricks were constructed during this period.


The church organises tours in the church and surrounding area between 2:30pm and 4:30pm every Saturday afternoon from the beginning of April until the end of September.
