11/9 Church of St. Peter
Parish church. Mid-C12, restored and extended 1884. Roughly coursed
sandstone rubble, more evenly dressed and coursed to C19 additions;
machine tile roofs with coped verges on kneelers. Nave with west bellcote,
chancel, south porch, north vestry and brick store shed. Nave: one
diminutive round-headed C12 window on north and south sides with early
C15 square-headed west window of 3 cusped lights; square-headed window
to east of C12 window on south probably late C16 or C17 with mullion
removed. C12 south doorway has one order of shafts with scalloped
capitals and chevron ornament to both extrados and intrados of arch;
impost to-right side of arch with cable moulding. Massive nail-studded
plank door with fleur-de-lys pointed strap hinges is probably late
medieval or C17. Gabled west bellcote with twin round-headed bell
openings and timber porch on low sandstone walls both 1884. Short
one-bay chancel of 1884 has single trefoil-headed windows with hoodmoulds
on north and south and one of 3 lights to east. Gabled vestry at junction
with nave and chancel also 1884 and lean-to brick shed adjoining to
west is roughly contemporary. Interior: very plain with late C19 trussed
rafter roofs to nave and chancel. Deep single-splays of C12 windows
visible. Some C18 panelling (probably from former box-pews) reused
as wainscoting in nave but remainder of fittings and furnishings are
late C19 or later. Monument: wall memorial to John Henshaw of Wem,
attorney (died 1801) - nave, north side. B.O.E., p.165; D.H.S. Cranage,
