Summary Description

The church is dedicated to St Peter and the Patronage was in the hands of the Order of St John of Jerusalem as early as 1220, and so continued until 1556 when it passed to the Crown. The church possibly originated in the C12 and was rebuilt in the C14. In 1866 it was restored, with the chancel and gabled porch rebuilt by J P St Aubyn. It is constructed of rubble stone with some ashlar, sandstone quoins, weatherings, parapets and opening surrounds to the nave and tower.
