The church is Norman, however the exterior mostly dates from a major rebuild by Miss Eliza Wingfield in the late 18th Century. 

Stepping inside St Peter's your eye is drawn to its most impressive feature; a splendid Norman arch. The arch was built between 1130-1150 and features six bands of intricate carvings including some fantastic beak heads, creatures and grotesques. The arch has become distorted due to the weight of the seven feet thick wall above.  

Within the chancel admire the incredibly rare sex-partite  vaulting with a fine Norman boss. There is also a Romanesque font and some fine decorative Victorian stained glass.
