St. Peters will be open from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm weekends and Mondays & Tuesdays until October - the sign board will be outside -and we would love more visitors to this charming Saxon church with wonderful views over the Gipping Valley – parking available in layby opposite the church gate.

On a commanding site, St. Peter’s was commissioned by eccentric High Church rector, George Drury, of ‘Akenham Burial Case’ fame – it is full of vibrant stained glass and extravagant carvings – you can even find Russian nobility buried in the graveyard. There are some wonderful trees in the grounds which we are keen to identify – if you can tell us what they are do phone 830535.

The Churches Conservation Trust are responsible for the upkeep of this and Akenham church locally, and are manned by volunteers, so do try and visit and sign the Visitors Book, and of course, all donations will be gratefully received.
