St Peter's Church, Upper Slaughter

(5/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
St Peter's Church, Leckhampton is the Church of England parish church in Leckhampton, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England. The church belongs to the Diocese of Gloucester, and is a member of the developing group of South Cheltenham Churches along with St Philip and St James Church, Leckhampton, St Christopher, Warden Hill, and St Stephen's and Emmanuel.HistoryThe present church, including the nave, sanctuary, south aisle, and spire, is thought to have been built by Sir John Giffard, Lord of the Manor of Leckhampton, in the 14th century. He and his wife are commemorated by effigies in the church. There must have been an earlier church on the site, since in 1162 one of its priests was fined two shillings for non-payment of dues to the Canons of Cirencester Abbey by Archbishop Thomas Becket.The church was enlarged in the 1860s by the addition of a north aisle and the lengthening of the nave at the west end, under the direction of the architect John Middleton. With the expansion of the local population, part of the medieval parish containing much of the 19th century residential development was detached to form the new parish of St Philip and St James.

  • Not is if one of the views will be more iconic of the Cotswolds but it is worth going to see the whole. It seems to me that from the river and the bridge Church, Prairie, and the houses that surround the Bank are one of the views more idyllic and beautiful area. In addition are practically alone in the visit (what I consider a plus). For my was one of the great discoveries of the trip.
