Churches (223) : St Peter, Berkhamsted

The parish church of St Peter in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire was founded in around 1222CE though most of the current church dates from the 14th and 15th centuries. The church was altered during a Victorian restoration.

The church is in a cruciform layout with a nave and transepts, the tower atop the crossing. The chancel is the oldest part of the church which dates from the 13th century. The south transept has a lady chapel. During the restoration in the 1870s the exterior was refaced with flint flushwork.
