About Us

St Peter’s Blackland is a Grade 2* listed church dating back to the 12th century, which holds approximately 50 people, and became part of the Parish of Calne in 1995*. It is the country church of Calne, set in beautiful secluded parkland on the edge of an AONB and is held in great affection by the congregation and local residents.

An ancient parish church (there was a church here at the time of the Domesday survey), the oldest visible part of the church is the chancel which still has its original trussed rafter roof. The bell that tolls at St Peter's today has done so for over 300 years. One of the windows in St Peters church has Stained Glass designed by Charles Kempe (1837-1907). 

*In October 2010 at a service of inauguration led by The Right Reverend Stephen Conway, the Bishop of Ramsbury, the parishes of Derry Hill, Bremhill and Foxham combined with those of Calne and Blacklands to form the Marden Vale Team Ministry.

A monthly service of Holy Communion takes place at St Peter's using the much loved Book of Common Prayer.  Seasonal festivals are also celebrated.
