St Peter’s Church is a building of flint and stone in the Early English and Perpendicular styles, it has a low western tower which is embattled, pinnacled and containing one bell. Of architectural significance is the ornate north side with its fine flush work arcading. The font is of particular note and is believed to pre-date 1607.

There are two pieces of medieval stained glass inserted into the north window. The Church was restored in 1870 by the Campbell family at a cost of about £2000; the Lady Chapel was restored in 1920 and a stained glass window erected by Mrs Overman, J.P. to commemorate Lt. John Gilbert Overman, killed in action in 1918. 


Weasenham is part of the Parishes of the Upper Nar and Launditch Group.
