7/3 Church of St Peter In The Wood. 20.12.60 II

Parish church. Rebuilt on an old site In 1830, using a grant from the 'incorporated society for promoting the enlargement building and repairing of churches', architect T.M. Shurmer. Rendered walls and slate roof. Of a plain Gothic style, a cruciform aisleless.plan, most of the western arm (with thicker walls) being raised as a tower; west porch. The very plain exterior has pointed coupled windows (triple at the east and west ends) in the gables, chancel and tower, with small windows placed high just east of the tower. The tower has a parapet, and diagonal stepped buttresses, ending at the top as square piers, crowned by slender pyramid finials. The porch has a 4-centred arch: the side windows to the transepts are 2 (north) and 3 (south) light casements of domestic scale. The interior appears as a long narrow nave/ chancel, broken in the centre by the segmental-pointed arches of the transepts, and with a flat segmental plaster vault, stopped at the west by a tower arch. At this point the ceiling rises inside the tower, to provide space for the (virtually hidden) gallery. The north transept has a pointed plaster ceiling and the south transept (slightly narrower on plan) a semi-circular plaster _ vault. The south transept serves as a vestry, with a doorway beneath the gable window. There are wall monuments of 1785, 1798, 1807 and 1835, and a Royal Coat of Arms of William IV, of 1831. There is a Victorian octagonal font, but in the porch what appears to be the original font, comprising a very slender circular stone pillar, on a square base, with a vase top, now accommodating a shallow metal dish.'
