"The porch is of stone construction with twin pillared supports on either side of the entrance arch surmounted by a triangular proscenium with a small central niche containing the figure of St. Peter holding the ‘Keys to Heaven’.

The inside of the porch has stone vaulting with a decorated boss and modern mullioned glass on either side. Each internal corner has a small symbolic and finely cut sandstone sculpture at the base of triple ‘ribbing’, representing the four Gospel writers, viz. an angel (Matthew), a lion (Mark), the sacred bull (Luke) and an eagle (John)."
