Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Church of Saint John the Baptist stands on the site of the Priory of Saint John of Jerusalem, which was partially demolished at the Dissolution. Part of the building was converted into a private chapel, which was purchased in 1721 and enlarged into a church. The buyer offered the new church to Queen Anne's Commissioners who bought it and made it into a parish church, consecrated in 1723. The parish was taken from the Parish of Saint James, Clerkenwell. In 1931 the church became the church of the Order of Saint John, who run the St John Ambulance Service.
