Withington, St Peter's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The oldest part of St Peters is the nave and chancel, both late 12th century. Here you will find two Norman doorways. Between the nave and chancel is a carved wooden screen in Perpendicular Gothic style, dating from the 15th century.
The most notable memorial in the church is a brass tablet in the chancel to William Saxeye (d. 1612). Saxeye served Elizabeth I as a Chief Justice in Ireland.
Outside in the churchyard is an ancient cross, the steps and base of which are 14th or 15th century. The lych gate leading to the churchyard dates to the 16th century, though it has been the subject of a much more modern restoration.
