Church of St. Peter & Paul
March 2013

The Church of St. Peter & St. Paul was built in 1911 after an increase in population meant that the original 1882 (the first Church in the village) was too small.

In December 2007, all services through the winter months had to take place in the original building, which is located just in front of this Church, due to the poor state of the Church building. Numerous meetings were held regarding the Church development for a new Worship Centre together with the development of housing on the present site and the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul was declared redundant in March 2009.



After entering the former Church, it was clear that metal thieves had already gained entry and cleared the building of anything worth any value or interest. This isn’t the first time that thieves have targeted the Church of St. Peter & St. Paul though, in previous years the Church was targeted several times and high valued items such as a brass eagled lectern and a brass alter cross (valued at around £10,000) were stolen.



A demolition order has been granted on this former Church so it’s life is now very limited.

Despite not being religious ourselves, we would much rather see this Church brought back to it’s former historic glory rather than the 9 overpriced residential properties that have been approved by the local Council.








Thanks for looking and as always, more can be found on my website - Click Here! :)

Thanks again all :)

Lee, the Wangle hasn't come off yet! Really glad I invested in one!

Big Dave, I agree, it's disgusting to see that a building such as this has been stripped of everything inside. Like I said in the report, I'm far from religious but it's a place that I would love to see brought back to life. Doubtful now that demolition has been granted though :(

Greatly shot report that, am liking the warm tones in the images :)
as others have said shame about the disrespect to the church, seems even more wrong when its a church Saint Saviours not as sparkly as it used to be either
