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 the 11th century, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 describes St Peter's Church as "a building of stone in the Perpendicular style, with traces of Norman work, and consists of nave, south porch and an embattled western tower, with pinnacles, containing 5 bells, four of which are inscribed with a chronogram of the date 1693". The chancel was said to have been destroyed by fire before the Reformation, but was rebuilt in 1895 on the old foundations from designs by the architect J.D. Sedding, of London.

The British Listed Buildings website dates it as circa 1500 with remains from the 11th and 14th centuries, and notes that the chancel has a foundation stone dated 1894.

The parish records of baptisms and burials date from 1735, and of marriages from 1755. The living was then a rectory in the gift of the trustees of the late William Laslett esq., and had been held since 1917 by the Rev. Joseph Holden Stallard M.A. of Pembroke College, Cambridge. The river Isbourne runs through the parish, and there was a station, on the Evesham and Ashchurch branch of the Midland Railway.

The parish in 1923 was still in Gloucestershire, but described as bordered on the north, south and west by Worcestershire. Its transfer to Worcestershire took place in 1931.


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.
