St Peter’s is a Grade I listed building with a stunning, almost complete, Georgian interior of national importance, with original 18th century fittings and furnishings. The church was rebuilt in the 1740s in Neoclassical style by William Baker of Audlem, with the stone tower completed in 1786 and the gallery extended in 1840.
The project will repair the original 1742 Georgian ceiling above the nave. There is evidence of deterioration of the timbers in the ceiling, and risk of plaster separating from its backing. The work will prevent further deterioration and replace the potentially unstable parts of the ceiling.
