Church of Peter, Thetford - Breckland

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, there is noticeable structural movement in the south buttresses of the nave, and one of the attached boundary walls is unstable. The project development stage of a Historic England Repair Grants for Heritage at Risk grant has been completed, and holding repairs under that grant will be carried out pending fund-raising for the main work.
