St Peter

History of St Peter's Cambridge

According to Pevsner, this was a small church made very small by rebuilding in 1781. Only the C14 W tower  and part of the unaisled nave were kept.

More information about this now redundant church can be found on Wikipedia.

A particularly interesting feature is the Saxon font, and its decoration with rather pagan looking mermen. An interesting article on it can be found here:
