2/40 Church of St Peter
Parish church, medieval. Restored 1872. Nave, chancel, west tower, north and
south porches. Flint rubble with freestone dressings. Plaintiled roofs with
parapet gables; the nave has parapets. Mainly late C14 work: 4-stage tower
with traceried belfry windows. Moulded west doorway has a hoodmould with
grotesque corbels, and above is a window with dagger tracery. Several good
C14 2-light side windows in nave and chancel, and simply moulded north and
south doorways. A prominent north porch added c.1500 with good quality
details. Completely covered in flushwork: chequerwork at the sides and in
trefoil-headed panels at the front and to the buttresses. A pair of north
buttresses with sunk traceried panels beneath buttressed and canopied image
niches. Each contains a carved stool and fan-vaulted coving; and an identical
niche is set above the doorway. The doorway has square flowers and grotesques
and crowns in casement mouldings, and the hoodmould has lions beneath and a
square label with shields and leaf carving. Large traceried porch side
windows and moulded archbraced roof. Interior: wide C14 chancel arch. An
unusual font; the octagonal bowl and stem of c.1500 with tracery and
supporting angels is set upon the bowl of the previous mid C14 font bowl.
This has been cut down, but the upper half of the sunk panels have traceried
heads and various carved figures. Major remodelling of 1872 included
rebuilding of nave and chancel roofs and refurnishing throughout. Arms of
George III over south doorway.
