Clare, St Peter and St Paul
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The church was built sometime shortly after the Norman conquest, but the nave and chancel are later, 15th century, rebuildings. The nave arcading is 13th century, as is the lovely west tower. The beautifully carved south porch dates to about 1380, as does the chapel.
Bits of a 15th-century rood screen remain, but only remnants of original stained glass remain; the rest was destroyed by the reform zealot William Dowsing and his followers in 1643.
