St John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Bath

The foundation for St John the Evangelist Church in Bath was laid in October 1861, and it was completed in October 1863. The tower and spire were added four years later. St John the Evangelist church was designed by the architect Charles Hansom, who designed some fifty Catholic churches in the UK. Hansom regarded St John's as his best and most rewarding work. St John the Evangelist was built on the site of an earlier priory by the Benedictines of Downside Abbey who handed it over to the Clifton Diocese in 1932.
