St Peter’s, Cornworthy

Dedicated to St Peter, this church is the second oldest building in the village, its fabric mostly dating from the 14th Century.

The early-16th-century screen is still in place – look for the pomegranates connected with Catherine of Aragon - and there is an almost complete set of Georgian pews dating from 1788. Inside them there are unique 19th-century graffiti. The font is Norman and points to the fact that there was once a much earlier structure than the one we see now.

 

The church is open all day and there is a good church guide and a trail for younger visitors.
