This ancient Fenland Church offers a warm welcome to visitors. It is a sister parish to St Clement's Outwell, with whom it shares the ministry team. Both churches are on the Cambs/Norfolk border: in fact the border used to run through the middle of both villages along the Well Creek. There is a staithe for mooring outside the church. St Peter's was one of the inspirations for Dorothy L. Sayers' "The Nine Tailors" and has a fine angel roof and two galleries.
