St Peter’s Church

There has probably been a church on the St Peter’s site for some 1000 years. The present church, which can seat about 200 people, was substantially rebuilt in 1860. However, it has retained much of its earlier character with a Saxon font and the Perpendicular square tower which houses a set of six bells and has an unusual sun-dial on two of its faces. Inside the church there is a window by John Piper and a notable 17th century tomb, the Walter Tomb. For more details about the history and architecture of St Peter’s, click on the relevant sub-menu.
