The Ancient Parish church of St. Peter and St.Paul was first recorded in the Domesday Book and notable for Norman, late Medieval, Georgian and Victorian alterations and additions. In May 1643 Parliamentary cavalry, under the leadership of Oliver Cromwell, clashed with Royalist forces on land between Belton and Syston, to the north of where Belton Woods hotel now stands. The Belton church register records "May 1643, buried three unknown soldiers, slain in Belton fight" The church lies in the grounds of Belton Hall a Grade 1 listed building now a National Trust property which dates from 1686. “If anybody would like to expand this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first at firstname.lastname@example.org so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication. There is also a Church Micro Stats & Information page found via the Bookmark list ”
