St Peter & St Lawrence

 

The parish church of St Peter and St Lawrence is mentioned in the Domesday Book and has been at the centre of the rural community ever since.

The Grade II* building dates mainly from the 13th Century, but features a font which is believed to be of Saxon origin. The church contains some fine stained glass and monuments, including early 14th Century stained glass depicting three medieval family shields including that of the influential Percy family.

St Peter and St Lawrence is the only public building where people can gather in this isolated rural community. The church is used for some community activities, but these are limited by the lack of kitchen and toilet facilities in the building. Consequently the project will support the installation of a kitchen in the base of the tower, and a toilet.
