FARNHAM COMMON Buckinghamshire
St. John the Evangelist

In 1924 a plan was submitted for an extension, including a south aisle, vestries, Lady chapel, sanctuary, west porch and narthex, and completion of tower.  Eventually only part of this was carried out, with the south aisle extension and the work on the tower being deferred.

However, a new sanctuary was constructed, giving a better sense of proportion to the building, and the vestries and new porch were built. The sanctuary roof follows on effectively in style from what was already in place. The guide book says:  Had this plan been carried out in its entirety, St. Johnís would have had few equals of its size and period.
