Church of St Peter, White Hart Street, Thetford - Breckland

A former parish church of C14 origins, now redundant, owned by Thetford Town Council and let for community use. Walls of flint and flushwork with distinctive chequerwork in the tower buttresses. The north aisle roof is leaking and there is noticeable structural movement in the south buttresses of the nave. Some of the boundary walls incorporate reclaimed monastic fabric: one of these on the south side is reported to be unstable. In 2018, a Historic England Heritage at Risk Repair Grant was accepted towards a project development phase, which is due to commence during autumn 2018.
