Brief description

"St Peter Church," is a Grade II listed building dating from 1769.  It replaced an early church which was destroyed during the Siege of Wallingford in 1646.

The present church is Georgian in style and was officially opened on 29 June 1769.  It was declared redundant two hundred years later, on 29 June 1969.  The building is now used as a venue for public events and concerts.

William Morris and Company designed the stained-glass East Window "Feed My Lambs"(1919).

A full architectural description of the church is available online from the Historic England website. https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1182891?section=official-list-entry
