Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

This is one view of the interior of St Peter's.

My view is taken from the chancel, looking back into the interior and the oldest part of the church.
The back wall, with the doorway is the original, 9th century wall. It leads into the original baptistry which had blocked up, original doorways.
There were no windows in the baptistry and nothing of real interest to attempt to record as a photograph.

For those who asked about the modern usage of the church, you will be able to see that there is no seating for a congregation.
The church is consecrated and has to perform two services a year (Christmas and Easter, I believe) but these can take place outside.

The church is managed by English Heritage which has some fine displays for visitors to study, and the curators are very knowledgable on the history of the church.

I will add a workshop, showing a closer view of the Anglo-Saxon wall.

Have a lovely w/e, Bev :-)
