St Peter's church is open every day from 10.00am to 5.00pm for visitors and those wanting a period of individual prayer.
The parish of Monkton Farleigh includes the village itself and Pinckney Green, Farleigh Rise and Farleigh Wick, which together have a population of about 400 people.
The earliest part of the church is the late 12th century Norman door, which is round headed and decorated with zigzag moulding. The inner order of the arch has been cut away, probably in the restoration in 1874. The square tower is probably 13th century and has a saddleback roof. There is a Norman font. Apart from these features, the church was rebuilt in successive stages in 1844 and 1874. On the south side of the chancel there is a one storey rectangular addition, built as a Sunday School but now used as a vestry.
St Peter's does not have its own car park and visitors should therefore park in the road outside the church. Please park considerately so as not to block the road or access to neighbouring properties.
