Harton Benefice

Welcome to our ten village churches.

We look forward to meeting you.

Whitwell on the Hill - St John the Evangelist

Occupying a prominent position at the top of Whitwell Hill, close to the A64, this building is a splendid example of the work of G. E. Street.  It was completed in 1860.

The church, approached through an attractive lychgate, has many fine features.  The nave and chancel extend for 80 feet; there are 6 bells by Warner of London, some beautiful stained glass, a 2-manual Willis organ and several interesting  wall memorials.  Pause, as you leave, to take in the view. 

The church is open during the day and vistors are welcome.
