The village of Levington is a vibrant community of about 260 people. St Peter's church is probably 12th to 13th century in origin. It is much admired by visitors, because of its simplicity and its position overlooking the river Orwell.
St Peter's Church is a small and simple church, but one well known for its welcoming atmosphere. It is open daily for the use of the congregation and visitors alike and is an integral part of village life.
The Friends of St Peter's was founded in 1998, to preserve and care for the fabric of St Peter's Church, and maintain the churchyard.
