St Peter


The nave and chancel were originally built in the late 12th century, the evidence being the thickness of the walls and the two simple Norman nave doorways. The chancel was later renewed, and is divided from the nave by a wooden tracery screen of the 15th century, in Perpendicular style mounted on a stone base. The tower, probably late 13th century, is strengthened by its diagonal buttresses. The graceful octagona lstone spire was added in the 14th century and renovated in both Victorian times and in 2006. The font is probably Victorian with marble columns and of Decorated character.

There are no toilets, kitchen facilities, nor any mains water at the church which is a source of discomfort, particularly for those travelling long distances for life events. It prevents us running wider community events, in particular for younger children. The church will be connected to mains water and mains sewage, and will build an accessible toilet, kitchen with a sink and storage facilities. This will help make the building more accessible, and will also make the church a more useful building to the wider community, enabling us to develop our offering, provide a warmer welcome for those attending life events, as well as offering refreshments at events, which will help us generate an income to support the future sustainability of the church.
