St Peter

Come along and sit in peaceful tranquility amongst the most rural of settings.

About this church

Our tiny church has remained unchanged for centuries. But it does have a story to tell, far more powerful and shocking than its rural setting belies.

Our tiny church was home to the Beechey family in late Victorian times, Revd Beechey was our Vicar, who lived here. His wife, Amy, gave birth to 14 children, and all 8 sons went to War, but only three returned, representing one of the most enormous single sacrifices in this country. There is now a stained glass window, donated to our church by the Beechey ancestors, showing their story.

Come and listen to our Audiotour, which tells the tale of the Beechey family, and imagine what it must have been like for Mrs Amy Beechey, and her daughters to dread the telegrams that arrived.    

But also, come along and enjoy the tranquility of our setting, sit in the churchyard amongst its memories and take time to contemplate.
