Interior view of Adel Parish Church showing the chancel arch. The Norman church, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, is a Grade I listed building dating back to around 1150-1170. The chancel arch is particularly fine, decorated with carved chevron and beak-head designs of the Norman period. The capitals are carved with depictions of the Baptism of Christ, the crucifixion, a centaur with bow and a horseman with lance. Adel Parish Church is located off the east side of Church Lane.
