Description

A huge 13th-century tower dominates this Medieval church in a quiet location on the Kent Downs. The church has very close links with the Knights Hospitallers whose Commandery still stands across the fields. The church has much to discover, like the 14th-century porch with two Medieval 'Mass Dials' (sundials to tell the service times); a 14th-century font which was rescued from a garden in 1914; two 20th-century stained glass windows. The West window contains birds, flowers, a squirrel and a rabbit, the fine South window depicts The Crucifixion. St Peter's has been enlarged and changed over the centuries. There are a clear Victorian influences seen in the North aisle, the pulpit, the altar table and the chancel arch and the pews, and some 20th-century additions also. However, despite this, the church still retains many original traces of its Medieval past. Made redundant in 2000 the church is no longer used for regular worship.
