St John's is a Norman church from the 12th century, made redundant in 1874 when the two parishes in Duxford were combined.
Typical of the area, the church features a spike atop its tower and walls made of flint and rubble.
Inside the church are a great number of well preserved medieval wall paintings. There are scenes from the crucifixion of Christ, St Margaret's torture and martyrdom, and some grotesque devils. Other fragments are also visible around much of the church.
There are many intricate carvings as well as the paintings, particularly in the North aisle where human likenesses can be found alongside animals and angels.
The church is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust @thechurchesconservationtrust

Welp... made it to another birthday and I still feel like I did last year and the year before that... a clown. However, what's different this year is the smile on my face is as close to genuine as ever, not phony like the one painted on to make people laugh in the past. Sure, there's sad days and scars. What I've learned is that all scars heal in time, the happy days may seem short but the memories created last a lifetime. I'm embracing happiness for the first time in my life instead of feeling like I don't deserve it. I love you all, thanks for sticking with me through the ups and downs. The best is yet to come and all that other cheesy shit. 😊❤🖤🤡 #joker #knowledge #happiness #growth #birthday #spooky #gothic #creepy #art #haunting #life #death #melancholy
