St Peter

St Peter's was built by the monks of Meaux Abbey, parts of it dating back 900 years.

About this church

St Peter's was built on the highest land around, by monks skilled at draining a swampy floodplain!

There are still a few traces of the 12th century church, but most of the church dates from the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. It is an attractive, unpretentious village church, with a huge 15th century clear glass west window.

It has a beautiful churchyard round it, especially in the spring, with banks of daffodils and other spring flowers, while in summer there is a lovely vista south. It is a church which has been loved and cared for for centuries!
