St Peter's Church, Plemstall
St Peter's Church, Plemstall
The history of St Peter's goes back to the 7th century. It is believed that the present church is built on the site where Plegmund, later Archbishop of Canterbury, lived as a hermit. The surrounding land used to be a marsh and the church stands in a slightly elevated area which was known as "The Isle of Chester". The original church was built in the 12th century but the present building dates mostly from the 15th century. This was financed by the Trafford family who lived locally. A tower was added at the west end in 1826.
