Church of St Peter, Hayton :: Shared Description

The nave and chancel date from around 1120 and the south aisle arcade is late 12th century, although the current impression of the south aisle is of the Decorated period. The tower was built and the chancel rebuilt in the 14th century in Decorated style and the windows on the north side were enlarged at this time. The south porch dates from around 1400. The south doorway is Norman.

The south aisle arcade is late Norman work, of 3 arches on circular columns. The intermediate capitals are very different, on plain, the other with upright leaves in a style to be found also at Worksop Abbey. There is a fine 14th century octagonal font with a small green man on the underside of the tub. In the chancel there is a small trefoil-headed piscina, rather surrounded by Victorian panelling. The hammerbeam roof appears to date from the 1885 restoration by Somers Clarke.

The south aisle houses three recumbent effigies, much worn, of the 14th century, thought to be members of the De Hayton family. The remaining fittings are 19th century or later, but there is an impressive stone pulpit and a fine carved wood eagle lectern.

The church is Listed Grade I - for more information see LinkExternal link
