St Peter & St Paul

Step back in time at this unique and beautiful village church, almost certainly built in Anglo Saxon times, during the early 11th century and this building forms the nave of the current church.

About this church

The chancel and porch were added in the 14th century, while the tower was built in the late 15th century. The porch has original carvings of a face and a scallop shell in the roof beams.

There is a lovely triptych stained glass east window picturing St George, St Peter & Christ. Other windows are of cathedral glass in diamonds. There are some interesting monuments on the walls, including war memorials for the First and Second World Wars. There is a stone font.
