St. Peter's Church, St. Peter's Square

 

St. Peter's Church was established after the Norman Conquest of 1066 and stands on land given by William Peveril, Earl of Nottingham (The illegitimate son of William the Conqueror),  in what was known as the 'French' town of Nottingham - the town centred on The Castle. (The 'English' town stood on the hill with St. Mary's as it's centre).   The original church was burnt down by the army of Empress Matilda when it sacked the town in 1140 and was re-built at some date after 1175.  From the time of this re-build the church has been in continuous use and claims to be the oldest continually occupied building in the city. For more history of this church visit the church web site - see links page

St. Peter's has the warmth and beauty of a village parish church and is well worth a visit to explore the interior.
