St Peter’s Church has two spectacular features. The first is its C15 nave roof with wooden vaulting, hidden hammerbeams and flights of angels. The second is the expanse of late medieval clerestory glass, one of the best collections of undisturbed full-length figures in the county. It was set here in the C19 but its original location is unknown. Present are the Virgin Mary, St Gabriel, the Christchild, and the seated figure of God (headless) behind the crucified Christ with the dove of the Holy Spirit and St John the Baptist. The C14 East Anglian font depicts lions on the stem with the symbols of the evangelists, angels and rosettes on the bowl. Don’t miss the roundel in the south aisle of a musical centaur playing a viol.
