St Peter


The surviving fabric of the 13th century Priory church is of white Mansfield stone for the finely carved work and square blocks of local skerry stone (Mercian Mudstone) probably quarried from Stone Pit Close 400m north of the church. The extensive Victorian rebuild also employed Mansfield stone.

Consecration crosses, identical to those on the stone altar, are found on the medieval piers and around the windows in the tower staircase. Mason’s marks are found in the undercroft but not in the church.
