Long Description:
"St Peter is open and welcoming. Under an arch in the north transept there is a tomb with a carved cross on it. It is thought that this might be the final resting place of Stephen Of Sutton who ordered that he be buried in the church in 1280. There are a few wall paintings in evidence here, including one of the Virgin Mary in the south transept. There is also a repeated five leaf floral like pattern painted on to the walls in the south transept, very similar to that seen at nearby Great Casterton.
Looking up, there are carved figures of angels set in to the roof. Stained glass in the south aisle includes a representation of Simeon holding the infant Jesus[,with Mary and Anna nearby]."
