Chillesford, St Peter

A church was recorded on the hill, overlooking the entrance to the village, in the 11th century. The existing St Peter’s would have been constructed in the 14th century with a tower made from local, honey-coloured coralline crag. The Victorians added their mark. The modern east window designed by Surinder Warboys, is much admired, drawing visitors, and is complemented by an altar frontal designed by Elizabeth Clover and embroidered by Margaret Cuddiford,
