St John’s Church, Deritend
|Denomination||Church of England|
|Dedication||St John the Baptist|
The church was established in 1380 when the villagers in Deritend were given the right to build their own chapel rather than travel 3 miles to Aston Parish Church.
The church was rebuilt in 1735, with the tower being added in 1762. In 1939 the church was united with St Basil's Church, Deritend and St Basil's Church was used as the church of the united benefice. St John's was demolished in 1947. The calvary which had been erected as a memorial for the First World War was moved to St Gabriel's Church, Weoley Castle.
Eight bells were cast in 1776 by Robert Wells of Aldbourne, Wiltshire and these were removed and recast into a new ring which were installed in Bishop Latimer Memorial Church, Winson Green and then were moved to St John's Church, Perry Barr in 1972.
