Brief Description

A church of considerable antiquity. A pretty 18th Century memorial.

  • Main Description

    The church itself is of considerable antiquity, and consists of an odd low west tower, nave with a north porch and chancel. The nave is the oldest part, Norman work with original north and south doorways (with a tympanum each), one small north window and chancel arch barely 9 feet tall (2.5metres). Other larger later windows have been inserted to varied designs.

    The tower is later, transitional work, with a three-stepped pointed internal arch and a west lancet. The upper stage is 19th Century but seems to incorporate ancient two-light openings on the west face. The hipped roof and chimney adds to its odd appearance.

    The chancel too is a later addition, and is Early English work of the 13th Century. The east windows are large twin splayed lancets embellished by connected hood-moulding. A view of the altar from the nave is also possible through the two squints or Interior of St Peter's Church, Broughton Poggs The font is Norman with a completely plain tub on a panelled base. A pretty 18th century memorial on the north wall of the nave catches the eye
