Windsor Parish Church is one of the main churches in Windsor. The current church dates from the 19th Century, built in 1822. It replaced the Saxon and Norman Church of St John the Baptist which dated from around 1110AD. In 1870 the chancel and apse were added and then in 1898 the chancel screen was added in celebration of 60 years of Queen Victoria. The church has become a tourist attraction in Windsor, not least for the 17th century Last Supper painting above the entrance.
