Geocache Description:

St. Peters Church - Coton


The church of St. Peter, which stands in the centre of the village, dates from the 12th century and has been lovingly maintained by succeeding generations.
It is a small building of stone and flint, chiefly in the Decorated and Perpendicular styles, and consists of chancel, nave, aisles, north and south porches and a Perpendicular embattled western tower, carried on arches and finished with pinnacles and spire, it contains 3 bells.

Inside the font, of Norman work, consists of a square basin on a circular stem. Many of the nave pews are medieval, with little carvings of buttresses projecting from the corners and faces. In the south aisle is a small organ which has the twin advantages of being nicely painted and not at all intrusive.

The church was restored in 1880, and affords 150 sittings. The register dates from the year 1538.
Records of baptisms, marriages, burials and banns reside in the Cambridgeshire Archives.
Extracts from Kelly's Directory- Cambridgeshire - 1929 and www.druidic.org
