St. John the Baptist, Bathwick

This church was built 1861-62 by C.E. Giles, and it was soon enlarged with the addition of a large, south aisle in 1870 by Arthur Blomfield.

Salviati made the mosaic reredos of the "Nativity" above the high altar.

The mosaic flooring of the High Altar, Lady Chapel and Baptistery from 1879 is also by Salviati.

The designs include the sea, net and fishes, as well as the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
