St Peter


St Peter’s is located at the centre of the village. It has a fine thirteenth century tower, which is unusually found to the south end rather than the west. This enables the interior to be illuminated by a large west window, making it light and airy. A serious fire in the nineteenth century led to restorations by architects TH. and F. Healey who replicated the original designs wherever possible.

The project will make the building more suitable for community use by installing a kitchen and storage. Currently there is no space for work surfaces, crockery, washing up, or a kettle. Re-ordering at the west end will create a large space to be used flexibly by many different groups. The new space and facilities will attract more people into the church, for coffee mornings, exhibitions, amateur dramatics, and rehearsals. They also plan a history group, as the church has become the focus of a growing interest in village history.
