  St Peter's is  one of the few churches  mentioned  in the  Doomsday Book (1086) this  was once a  prosperous  place. A  beautifully proportioned  cruciform  Mother Church to Ludlow,  it is  originally   Saxon, about 1050,  with 13th and 16th century    additions. There is typical Anglo-Saxon stonework in      the west and north walls, and part of the north    transept, with thin pilaster strips. The blocked north doorway is also in typical Saxon style.  The chancel is 13th century with the tower and south transept were built a century later.  Many highly coloured windows.

Victorian improvements include the windows, altar and reredos of Caen stone with beautiful painted panels.  Original Gray and Davidson organ.  Eighteenth/ nineteenth century churchyard within larger prehistoric enclosure.
