St John The Baptist Church, located in the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne, is one of Newcastle's oldest buildings and is a 12th century Grade 1 listed building.
Some fragments of the original building remain, but the church is mainly medieval. Worthy of note are the 16th century font cover, the Jacobean pulpit and the reredos in the chancel. Amongst the fragments of medieval glass is the earliest known representation of the city’s coat of arms.
