A peaceful Medieval church

This beautiful and peaceful church, with an elegant spire, was built from the Norman period to the 15th-century.

The oldest part of the church is the Norman chancel with its priest’s door and corbel table; the nave and west tower are of the 14th-century, although externally the tower has crenellated parapets and Perpendicular tracery of the 15th-century.

The graveyard is filled with 18th and 19th-century monuments to the former inhabitants of this sleepy village.

The church is full of interesting furnishings including Jacobean bench pews, Medieval carvings and stained glass. Look carefully and you might also find green men, mythical beasts and sword markings...

    My nearest CCT church and a favourite. Very peaceful with some great features.

    Visited today, lovely in the spring sunshine (at last). But the church smells and looks damp, and seems to be in need of a little tlc. Hope you can provide it.

    I am wondering if anyone can help me with a question. I have not visited the Church of St. Peters. My family are the Stricklands from the 1500s in Wintringham and Boynton who are said to have been buried in this church. The church looks too small for tombs. Could this be misinformation? These would be William Strickland, his wife Elizabeth and children. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Ron Strickland

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Disabled access

There is a hard gravel path through the churchyard and a small step into the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
