Long Description:
There are two windows with stained glass in St Peter's church, Stonesby. A two light window in the chancel east wall, and 3 light window at the east end of the south aisle.

"Stonesby is mentioned in the Doomsday Book as 'Stovenby'. This means 'village beside the tree stump'. St. Peter's church is one of a dozen or so locally which were built by the monks from Croxton Kerrial during the 12th and 13th centuries. It is built from local stone which is a mixture of limestone and ironstone, and has some quoins from the quarry at Ketton in Rutland. The most striking feature of the church is an original Norman font in the centre of the main aisle.

In common with all buildings it has been subject to many modifications over the centuries - some obvious, and some less so. The most perplexing is an archway in the north wall of the Chancel. Started but never finished and not detectable from without! The last major restoration project was completed in the 1890s and set out the pews in the church as we find them today."
