Church of St Peter, Berrister Place, Raunds - East Northamptonshire

Large urban church of C12-C13 and C14 with important wall paintings. Restored C19. There is a history of movement at the west end and, by 2013, the northwest corner of the north aisle had settled and the south aisle required tying. Wall paintings had deteriorated as a result of water ingress and or movement. Monitoring suggested no significant on-going movement but localised underpinning of the north aisle was agreed. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship grant was awarded mid-2017 and repairs should complete in 2018.
