She petulantly kicked over her foot stool and demanded that the church should be designed "like that" - in the shape of her up turned stool. It is from this outburst that St Johns gained the epithet "the Footstool". Located in the crypt of the Church, our restaurant Footstool with beautiful brick arches.
