Saint Peter's Church - [micro-site]
Saint Mary's Church - [micro-site]

There are two churches in this town – St. Peter’s and St. Mary’s. St. Peter’s the mother church, is a spacious building of stone, chiefly in the Decorated style, with some Perpendicular insertions and additions, and consists of chancel, clerestoried nave of five bays, aisles, vestry, north and south porches and a western tower containing 6 bells, the oldest of which is dated 1666, and a clock, presented by the late Miss. Tombleson and placed in the tower in November, 1852 at a cost of £120. The great feature of this church is its celebrated tower, a short, massive structure with very thick walls, originally of three stages, and now 70 feet high and 18 feet square; the upper portion of the tower is certainly Norman, of early date, but the architectural construction of the lower stages is so entirely different from that above as to lead to the conclusion that these remains are undoubtedly Saxon work
