3/22 Ruin of Church of St.Peter
(Formerly listed as Remains
7.5.54 of Chapel of St. Laurence)

- II

Ruin of church. Mediaeval ; converted to dovecote C18 (limestone plaque on
south side inscribed "T.R.1754"). About 6 metres square on plan. The
original work is in flint and limestone rubble with freestone dressings; of
this only the eastern parts of the nave side walls remain. The C18 work is
mainly of gault brick with dentil eaves. On the west face is primary-braced
C18 studding with brick-nogging. Diagonal C18 buttresses of gault brick at
the eastern corners replace most of the earlier ashlar quoins. Hipped
plaintiled C18 roof with gablets. On the north side is a near-complete C15
hood-moulded window with remains of transome and tracery; to right is part of
a blocked C13 lancet, another formerly existed to left. Various boarded-up
C18 openings. Visible inside the building is the inner arch of a former
window in the south wall, perhaps of C15.
