St Peter’s, ClippesbyOpen daily dawn to dusk.
St Peter's is a quaint small round tower church tucked away amongst the trees. Its fabric is a lesson in architecture through the ages, from the 12th century to the Victorian era. Both nave doorways are Norman and feature mysterious graffiti. A brass from the late 16th century in the sanctuary is dedicated to John Clippesby, his wife, three daughters and a chrysom child (a child who passed away within a month after its baptism). An earlier pairing is Thomas Pallyng and his wife (1506). Notice their elegant outfits. The beautiful south nave window of 1919 is in the Arts and Crafts style and shows Christ with children. Look closely and you will see a toy Noah's Ark bobbing in the water.
