St. Peter's Church, Stanley
St. Peter's Church, Stanley
The foundation stone was laid in 1822 and the church opened on 6th September, 1824. In February, 1911, the pitch pine roof caught fire and the church interior was destroyed. The church reopened in July, 1913. In recent years the building has deteriorated and is now unsafe. The red notices warn people to keep away from the unsafe structure and some fairly hefty plants can be seen growing from the roof and towers. There are plans to redevelop the building as housing and this has stirred up some local disapproval. The building is Grade II listed.
