  • Dropped by this pretty little church. Its roof is the main attraction, allegedly made from the timbers of a past spaceship.

  • This ancient church is in need of attention - so go along and have a look and please pop some money in the restoration box. Since returning home we've looked it up on-line and can't find any...

  • “At a short distance from St. Peter’s is a fast rising into existence what will prove, when finished, a very neat and pretty church. It is an irregular octagonal​—​that is, the sides are not of equal dimensions. It is built of the same kind of stone as St. Philip’s; but has a better effect, from the blocks being cut of larger size. The base of the tower is constructed from the interior; but in its present unfinished state, (1842) with all its multiplicity of scaffolding and frame work, it is impossible to say what will be the effect; except, as I have before remarked, it will no doubt make a pretty appearance when completed. The architect is an Englishman, and the head mason ( a black man) appears to be well-versed in the mysteries of his trade, to judge from the excellent smoothness in the joints of the walls, and from a very neat key-stone which he has sculptured. This church is intended to take the name and service from the old one, which will then be dismantled.” The parish church of St. Peter’s, the second of the name, is an old dismal looking building, whose outward appearance is enough to give the observer a fit of that fashionable complaint, dyspepsia. It was erected in 1754, and affords 300 sittings. St. Peter’s has a chapel-of-ease, the private property of the Rev. Nat. Gilbert, a descendant of the “founder of Methodism” in Antigua, who was speaker of the house of assembly in 1764.” Excerpt From Antigua and the Antiguans, Volume 1 (of 2) / A full account of the colony and its inhabitants from the time of the Caribs to the present day Mrs. Lanaghan This material may be protected by copyright. storic landmark built in parham town.
