St. Peter's church, North Hayling
St. Peter's church, North Hayling
Built in the year 1140, originally as a chapel of ease for the inhabitants of North Hayling, who often found their way to the Saxon church of All Saints in the southern part of the island to be flooded, and was eventually consumed by the sea in 1324.
St. Peter's was built by the monks of the Benedictine Abbey of Jumieges in Normandy to which the Island was given by William the Conqueror until being taken back by Edward the 5th in the early 15th century..
In the beautiful graveyard there is the grave of Princess Yurievskaya, daughter of Tsar Alexander II of Russia ( 1818 - 1959 ) who spent the last 27 years of her life on Hayling Island, dyeing in relative poverty.
