A stone piscina and sedilia in the chancel of St Peter's church, Saltby.

St Peter's church at Saltby is a grade II* listed parish church with a 13th century west tower, early 14th century nave and chancel which were reworked in the 15th century and the chancel was further remodelled during the 1885 restoration.

The church is built of Ironstone with limestone dressings and the parapets hide roofs that are lead. The tower is built in 3 stages with a late 14th century belfry stage and a Perpendicular gabled south porch with double chamfered entrance arch. There is a blocked north nave door and a blocked north door in the chancel to the east of an organ chamber with no organ.

The font is a plain 13th century drum font on a hexagonal stem and the bench sedilia and piscina are dated around 1885.
