~ St. Peter's Church ~


The church, dedicated to St. Peter, is the second oldest building in the village its fabric mostly dating from the 14th century.

The early 16th century screen is still in place – look for the pomegranates connected with Catherine of Aragon - and there is an almost complete set of Georgian pews dating from 1788. Inside them there are unique 19th century graffiti. The font is Norman and points to the fact that there was a much earlier structure than the one we see now. The church is open all day and there is a good church guide and a Church Trail for younger visitors. 

St. Peter’s has, in the last two years, been the subject of considerable repairs and renovations amounting to some £200,000 about a quarter of which has been raised within the village. Further funds have come from within the Anglican Church itself, a large grant from the Heritage lottery Fund and the remainder from private foundations which award sums of money to aid such work.
