This magnificent church from the late twelfth century contains several masterpieces of curious Norman carving - including a chancel arch decorated with several rows of chevrons. The upper stage of the tower and the north chapel are of the later Middle Ages.
After suffering years of uncertainty and vandalism, St. Peter's was acquired by The Churches Conservation Trust - the first church in its collection.
