Summary Description

St Peter’s church is located in St Peter’s Avenue, in the centre of Cleethorpes Town. It is surrounded by mixed developments of shops and private houses. The Avenue is relatively busy, being one of the main shopping streets. The church is a prominent landmark, and the tower is visible from the promenade. The church was constructed in 1864-6. The plan consists of nave, aisles, chancel, south porch, narthex at the west end and tower (constructed in 1867) in the north-east corner of the building. The architect was James Fowler of Louth. The church is listed Grade II; the listing entry appears in Appendix 1.
