A great many people from all over the world have visited the church this year to enjoy its history, peace and relevance as a place of worship.

The church of St Peter is a Grade 1 listed building dating back to 1406 and is of timber-framed, originally wattle and daub construction, all pegged together with wooden dowels - quite unusual in this county.  

Thank you to those who have signed the visitor’s book and left thoughtful and complimentary comments. We try our best to keep the church in good order, with fresh flowers and tidy grounds. It is though a country church so we expect some long grass and weeds outside, the occasional muddy footprints on the carpet and a church mouse inside!
