Church and Churchyard
Ancient Church of St. Peter. Built in C.12 incorporating part of an earlier Saxon chapel, mentioned in the Domesday Book. Not a parish church, but a field-chapel. The church was closed when the new St. Peter's was built in 1866, but it was not entirely demolished, and this remaining portion was renovated and re-sanctified in1963. The altar is a C.17 oak communion table. Painted on the walls are two Royal ciphers, one dated 1588. The original C.12 oak, studded door with strap hinges and ring handle is fixed onto the south interior wall. The churchyard is surrounded by an old low flint and stone wall. It contains many fine tomb stones and has been planted with lime trees. Ref: 1. A Short History of Stockbridge and its Churches. Ref: 2.
