History

The church building: Saint Peter's occupies the site of a 12th Century church. The interior is an unusual mixture of old and new. As well as ancient stone work, 19th century boxed pews, the sanctuary was completely refurbished in 1967, and a millennium plaque recognises that Christian worship has been offered on this site for over a thousand years. Perhaps most significant is the famous 15th century tomb of Sir Ralph Grey sited in the South Chapel. A detailed description of this tomb, published by the Society of Antiquities.
