Sibton St Peterís church
Sibton St Peterís church
Immediately inside the small porch you are greeted by a late 12th c doorway with two engaged columns each side. The 13th century structure and 15th century tower have stood the test of time well. Alterations have been made recently but everything is still intact. The attention is drawn upwards to the magnificent hammerbeam roof with shields on the ends of the hammers and 30 small figures look down. There are 100 bosses to count on the chancel roof. The 15th century font, standing on a triple plinth, is well carved with animals, angels and wodewoses around the shaft. There are two canopied niches either side of the chancel arch and a nice monument to Sir Edmond Barker (1676) with his wife Mary. On the floor in the chancel is a portrait brass to Edmund Chapman and I think dated as 15 . 7 (1507 ?) Nearby are the ruins of Sibton Abbey.
