History of St Peter's Church

St. Peter's church was first registered in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle of 922 AD. The current building includes a Chancel dating back to the 12th Century, and an 11th Century font, which draws visitors from far and wide. There have been many additions to the building, many dating back to the 15th and 16th Centuries, including an impressive tower, which houses the bells that are still rung weekly (bell-ringing practice is on Thursday evenings). St. Peter's also houses the village's original fire engine, known as 'The Sentinel', which was last used in 1896.

There is a published guide-book all about St. Peter's church, copies of which are available in the church (£2 per copy). If you would like one mailed to an address, please send us a request by e-mail.
