St Peter's Church |
St Peter's Church is open every day of the year from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm.
The first picture shows St. Peter's as viewed from Shaldon Bridge.
The building uses a variety of local and not-so-local stones to achieve some remarkable visual effects. On the sea wall side is the Choir Vestry and the north porch entrance, now converted into a disabled access toilet.
|This photograph of the eastern end of the Chancel shows how the use of multiple stone types continues in the interior of the Church.|
|This photograph of the north wall of the Chancel shows the use of still more stone types to achieve more dramatic effects. The metal gates form part of the rood screen, through which the people pass to receive Holy Communion.|
|At the south east corner of the Church lies the beutiful and peaceful little chapel dedicated to our Lady. .|
|Now if you thought that the pictures so far show off the stonemason's art, then take a look at this magnificent pulpit.|
|And here's the pulpit, showing the stone spiral staircase.|
