TM3272 : St Peter's

taken 2 years ago, near to Ubbeston, Suffolk, Great Britain

St Peter's
St Peter's
The name of this private property preserves the dedication of the old village church which was sold off under the Pastoral Measure of 1968. The chancel has been sensitively converted into a dwelling (as betrayed by the Velux windows) and the nave retained with little alteration as a studio. The churchyard has been landscaped to provide a garden, apart from a small section to the west which is approached by public path lined with relocated gravestones - see Adrian Pye's TM3272 : Rows of headstones from St Peter's churchyard.

The brick south porch, Tudor but probably rather later than the early 16th-century TM3272 : St Peter's tower, conceals a 12th-century doorway noted by Pevsner in 1961 as having one order of shafts and a single zigzag in the arch. Munro Cautley suggests that the site may once have been a Roman camp, lying as it does just off a military road.

St Peter's is now a private property and is not open to the public.
