Geocache Description:

St Peters Church - Barton


The church of St. Peter is an ancient edifice of stone in the Late Decorated style, and consists of large chancel, long nave, south porch and an embattled western tower with pinnacles and turret and containing 3 bells.

Inside a carved oak screen of Perpendicular date, enriched with shields of arms, separates the nave from the chancel. There are brasses in the chancel to John Martin and Margaret, his wife, dated 1593, a piscina and an aumbry.

The building was restored in 1885, at a cost of £1,350, and re-opened after extensive repairs in March, 1886, and affords 230 sittings. The register dates from the year 1687.
