The church of St. John the Baptist was originally dedicated to God and St. Alban and is an ancient edifice of stone, in the Early English style.
There is a chancel and nave and an embattled western tower, containing 5 bells.
The Church was formerly a possession of the Abbey of St. Albans and some portions appear to date from the time of Richard II, others from that of Edward III.
The church was restored in 1880, under the direction of the late Sir G. G. Scott R.A.




Work on the church tower starts on 20th February 2023.  Further information is available here.

Granborough Church Flower Rota

We are a small team of five who decorate the church with flowers throughout the year and would very much appreciate some help.
We use vases and therefore you do not have to be a trained flower arranger.
Each person places flowers in the church for 3 weeks at a time (a cool church means that the flowers last a long time).
Please contact Davina on 670596 for further information and hopefully to volunteer your help.
