St John's is very fortunate to possess a medieval chasuble. It is thought to have been made towards the end of the fifteenth century, and is a remarkable survival from this period.
Use and age contributed to the deterioration of the vestment and it became necessary for it to undergo a thorough restoration and conservation. Under the guidance of professionals, volunteers from the parish undertook this work, and the chasuble is now proudly on display at St. John's, a witness to the dedication of Catholics throughout the ages.
A fuller record of the history and restoration can be downloaded here, and the chasuble can be viewed at anytime when the church is open (most days).
