“This extraordinarily interesting Church”

St. Peter and St. Paul's Church
Reviewed September 10, 2015

This church was largely rebuilt after the devastating fire of 1731 when some of the pre-fire stones were re-used and can still be seen at the base of the building. Inside, after a Georgian start, the Victorians got involved and so it goes on. The entire church, including its bell tower, is incredibly interesting and the guides all know their stuff. If you like history you will not be disappointed by a visit to this wonderful building.

I went in here for a refreshing and relaxing coffee and biscuit away from the bustle of the market place and was not disappointed. I was greeted with the ordered wooden box pews as part of the sweeping impressive interior focussing up to the cupola and altar.

The church was in need of some basic TLC IMO, but work was in progress to restore the cupola and its golden weather vane and also to provide disabled access in the future.
