This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1150, and we understand it is still open.

St Peter's Church was built between 1150 and 1170. It is a Grade I Listed Building, with original nave and chancel, partially restored. The north aisle, with 3-arched arcade, was added during 13th or 14th century, but was rebuilt 1890-1. The piers are cylindrical with "large overhanging scalloped capitals". The chancel arch is "of 3 orders rising from engaged columns with voluted capitals", and is most impressive

The pulpit is 18th century. Amongst the Memorials are a brass 'Art Nouveau' lectern in memory of Major General William Noel Waller, who died in 1909, and a small brass inscription plaque to 'Thomas Cox of Lincolns Inn, Barrister (d.1658) which may be found under the chancel arch.

There are also two wall plaques recording those who served in the two World Wars.

The above description was compiled with the assistance of the British Listed Buildings website. Further information, and photographs, may also be available on the website of St Peter & St Paul, Northleach (St Peter is one if its Benefice Churches).


Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
