St Peter's is currently prioritising the restoration of its unique Lady Chapel. The Chapel was decorated and furnished in the 1920s a memorial to those killed during WW1 – including the beautiful wall paintings by Henry Charles Brewer. Responding to serious recent water damage we are conserving the painting and other furnishings and redecorating the Chapel – safeguarding our heritage and providing a flexible and usable space for our community.
The project will cost around £50,000. The church has committed emergency funding to prevent further water damage, and the congregation has generously committed a significant sum. To support this vital work please contact the Parish Office. Please made cheques payable to ‘St Peter's PCC’ and marked 'Fabric Fund' on the back.
The Lady Chapel project is part of a wider programme of work to restore the fabric of the Church. Between 2012 and 2017 a £880,000 3-stage stonework conservation project was delivered, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Listed Places of Worship Scheme, the National Churches Trust, the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Diocese of London and other generous supporters
