St. Peter's is situated on the banks of the River Wye, just north of Monmouth. This attractive whitewashed building dates back to at least the 12th Century, though was probably a holy site before then.
The herring-bone masonry in the north wall of the nave may be Saxon.
The Church is frequently subject to flooding and brass plates near the chancel arch record the height of the more memorable floods.
There is a new balcony at the back of the church so that precious items can be out of reach of the water. This has been decorated with a beautiful oak screen.
