Wiltshire Community History

The Church of St. John the Baptist, Foxham

The church was built in 1878-81 by William Butterfield but an Andrews and Dury's map of 1773 shows an earlier church on the site. It has a narrow tower and is made of rubble stone with ashlar dressings and a stone slate roof. The south side of the nave is barge boarded with a stone porch and timbering to the front. The interior, also by Butterfield, has been unaltered. There is a lot of red, black and slate blue tiling with patterned encaustic tiles. The nave has a tiled dado on the walls and a full height timber screen which dominates the area. A stained glass window of c.1855 was formerly the east window of Bremhill Church. There is a canted, ceiled wagon roof. The church had two bells in 1879, both small.

The parish registers from 1850 (baptisms and burials) and 1952 (marriages),other than those in current use, are held in the Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre at Chippenham. After 1911 Foxham entries are to be found in the Bremhill registers,
