SU 72 NW
9/9 Church of St Peter and
Parish church. 1865, on the site of a medieval church, a re-building by Teulon in
Neo-Norman style. Nave of 3 bays with aisles, chancel with shorter north and south
chapels, the south chapel extended as a vestry, and tall western tower, incorpora-
ting the entrance. Polygonal malmstone walls with Bath stone dressings, shallow
buttresses at the east and west ends, eaves and plinth plain mouldings, round-
headed small windows, plate-traceried circular windows to the east end and in the
middle of the aisles. Tile-roof, with gables in the centre of the aisles. The
steepness of the roof, with the aisle gables, gives a tall effect to the interior,
which has plain Norman features, varied by rich Byzantine capitals. Stone pulpit
on columns. Purbeck font (C12) from the old church, a square block resting on a
central drum, but lacking the former 4 columns at each corner. In the aisles are
Prescription tablets (C19), painted on metal sheets, once fixed above the chancel
arch of the old church. The tower is of particular interest, with a semicircular
stair turret in the centre of the south wall, shallow buttresses in the lowest
part, steep helm roof with copper gargoyles at each corner, and tall doorway above
a flight of steps.
