3/17 Church of St Peter

Parish church. Norman nave (C11) with C12 transepts, C13 chancel with south
chapel, C14 timber-framed bell tower inset into the south transept, south porch
c1700, north chapel (vestry) of 1846, and north aisle (obliterating the north
transept) of 1896. The exterior is mainly of 1896; flint walls with stone and
brick dressings, and a tile roof of 3 ridges. The oldest part of the structure
is the south wall of the nave, and the south transept, with C14 walling to the
south chapel, and these sections contain a C12 doorway, a C15 Perpendicular
south door, a C16 window to the nave, and a small C14 window to the chapel;
elsewhere the details are Victorian. Interior: generally Victorian, but there
are medieval piscinas, a C15 octagonal font, a Royal Coat of Arms with Queen Anne
device but later lettering GIII 1791, and a hatchment. Old photographs show
that the restoration of 1896 included drastic changes, with the removal of
Georgian fittings and a west gallery.
