Martin Nicholson's Cemetery Project

St Peter, Boxworth, Cambridgeshire

Return to the front page

This is a strange church. It is very small, and from the outside looks completely Victorian. In fact, St Peter is an old building. The main body of the nave is 12th century, and the south aisle is 14th century. The age is much more evident on the inside. The 14th century arcades are interesting and unusual - four octagonal shafts pressed together to form lozenge-shaped piers. The rest, though, feels very 12th century, despite the Victorian windows and tower arch.

Ruth Peppercorn has an unusual metal grave marker.
