If you plan a visit to us please note that our church grounds are open all year round but, for security reasons, St Peter’s church itself is closed unless a service is scheduled.

If you would like a tour inside the church please contact us by email, details below. If one of our volunteers is available we will try our very best to accommodate your requirements but do ask that you give us as much advance notice as possible.
