26.4.57 Church of St Peter


1845, by Thomas Henry Wyatt (following the demolition of the medieval church in 1844).
Aisleless nave of 7 bays and chancel of 2 bays, with a western tower attached to the
south side of the last bay of the nave (acting as a porch), a small vestry at the south
side of the west bay of the chancel. Generaly of Early English style, there is steep
tile roofing. Walling is fine squared flintwork with stone dressings to windows,
stepped buttresses (diagonal at corners), cill bands and plinth. Nave windows are
coupled lights with simple tracery, the larger east (3-light) and west (4-light)
windows being of Perpendicular appearance; the chancel windows are small lancets. The
tower has 2 tall stages and supports a lead broach spire of medium height, with coupled
openings to the belfry; the lower (but still tall) section has corner buttresses and
short staircase turret. There is also a small projection at the west end of the nave,
and attached to the tower with a small window formerly used (inside) as a recess for
the font). Within the nave is spacious, with an open timber roof having tie-beams
with decorated brackets, from which rise at the centre architraves and a vertical. The
high pulpit is approached through a small door (from the Vestry). The Communion rails
are C17 Flemish, with pierced panels in high relief containing putti amid floral
designs. A small C16 brass is on the north wall of the chancel. Other fittings are in
period, the total representing a stylish Gothic Revival building.
