5275 ST PETER'S STREET (West Side) Church of St Peter (Formerly listed under Market Street) TR 3358 1/1 19.5.50.



There is evidence in the base of the central tower of early Norman work, but it was rebuilt in the early C13. The aisles date from the C14 but the earthquake in 1661 caused the top of the central tower to collapse destroying the south aisle. The tower was rebuilt in the Dutch style in brick with a lead cupola surmounting it. There is a Dutch gable to the Vestry and an early C13 crypt under it. There are 2 fine C14 monuments in the north wall and a similar effigy upon a tomb at the west end, and a number of memorials.
