St John's Church, Carno, Montgomeryshire

Dedication: St John the Baptist

Denomination: Anglican

Built: 1867

The present building, erected in 1867 in Gothic style, replaced what was probably a medieval structure associated with the Knights Hospitallers and their adjacent grange of Caer Noddfa. The masonry may include some re-used material on the north side of the church, but virtually nothing other than the bells survived the Victorian rebuilding, though an early medieval inscribed stone, found in the village, now resides in the church. The churchyard is large and rectilinear containing monuments from the end of the 17th century onwards.
