9/16 Church of St Peter


Mainly C17 and C18 but of earlier origin, restored 1877. Aisless nave and chancel,
west tower, south porch. Tile roofing, with a small dormer. The chancel has brick
walling in Flemish bond with blue headers, plinth, fillets at eaves and verge, a C19,
3-light wooden 'Perpendicular' east window and a small Victorian north-side lancet.
The nave is roughcast, with coupled round-arched windows, a plain arched doorway (now
filled) on the north, and a larger arched doorway into the porch. The tower has a
recent pyramid roof in tiling, red brick walling in English bond, diagonal stepped
buttresses, rectangular windows, plinth, and a stone plaque incised 1685. The porch
has a Tudor wooden doorframe and 2 old eaves beams within, but is now walled in
brickwork (roughcast on the outside); there are 4 steps downward to the church floor
level. Within, there is a C17 Communion rail, a panelled pulpit dated 1650 with a
panelled tester, oak pews (C17), a C17 west gallery of heavy timbering with a front
rail of balusters (cut short). The octagonal font is Victorian; there is a small
brass wall plaque recording a gift by Thomas Sympson in 1674. The thick nave walls
and restored lancet on the north side suggest a structure of medieval origin, although
this was a chapelry of Overton until the C19.
