About this church
St Peter's is a fine 14th century building with a 15th century porch. It has no chancel, giving it a somewhat curtailed appearance, but this does not detract from the beauty of the windows, among the best of their kind.
The church's special treasure is its 40 15th century benches. These still stand on their original wooden sills, a most unusual survival. The carving on many of the benches is exceptional, especially, perhaps, those with latticework backs. Some have linenfold panelled backs, a further refinement of medieval seating. There are carvings of saints on some of the benches, and others have animals and imagined creatures on them.
