•The church of St. Peter consists of a chancel, nave, south aisle, west tower and spire, and a north porch. The walls are of rubble with stone dressings, and the roofs are covered with lead.
•The church is not mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086, but the thick north wall of the nave and numerous carved stones built into the wall point to a stone church on the site by the beginning of the 12th century. Probably it had an aisle-less nave. In about 1300, considerable alterations were made; the south aisle with its arcade was added, and the chancel and chancel arch was probably rebuilt. The tower and spire were built at the end of the 14th century. In the 15th century, the east end of the chancel was largely rebuilt, and the walls of it and the nave were heightened and new windows inserted in them. However, the windows of the clearstory seem to be early 16th century. The porch and the rood-stairs were built around 1500.
•The chancel was restored in 1871 when the east wall was largely rebuilt and a new roof put on; the rest of the church was refurbished about 1876-9. The south aisle was partly rebuilt, and considerable other repairs were done in 1903-4. The spire was struck by lightening on 3rd July 1908, and subsequently repaired.
“If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication.
