St Peter

An unusually complete Victorian interior with a breathtakingly elaborate chancel, featuring cusped and gilded roof rafters.

About this church

The church was entirely rebuilt in the style of a 13th century church by the architect Henry Woodyer in 1864.

The only pre Victorian relic is the 15th century chancel screen, which has, however, been elaborately decorated in colour, like the rest of the church. The nave walls are painted with the 'miraculous draught of fishes' in gold and blue.
