Ruins of St Peter's church, Quarrendon - Aylesbury Vale

Remains of church of C12 origins to the now deserted village of Quarrendon, on the outskirts of Aylesbury. The village declined from the C17 onwards when the local landowner lost all his lands, and by the beginning of the C19 furnishings had been stripped from the building. The church remained as a substantial ruin until the mid-C20, but today only small sections of wall bases remain. The ruin, with the rest of the monument, has been acquired by a Trust. Historic England grant aided works were completed in 2018 to consolidate the ruins. Long term maintenance/ management is needed.
