Feature Sets

St Peter's has a big, aisleless 15thc. nave with Perpendicular windows under wall arches, a 15thc. chancel with a similar internal elevation and a N vestry, a 13thc. W tower with a 15thc. tower arch and a two-storey 15thc. S porch. The chancel arch is 13thc. The church was restored in 1851, and N transept and attached organ chamber were added in 1868. Construction is of rubble with some render on the tower, which is fitted with a lead spike. The only features recorded here are two stones in the S porch, one loose, the other mortared in place. Both are treated as loose stones below.


In 1086 the Abbot of Ely held the manor of 5 hides.
