Summary Description

The church at Compton Wynyates is a rare and unaltered example of the churches of the reign of King Charles II, scarcely distinguishable from the churches of several decades earlier and in this indicative of the tendency of local masons to work in the tradition of their fathers and grandfathers. There are, for example, resemblances between this church and St. John, Leeds, built in 1632-3, especially in the twin-naved plan.
