The Harling and Guiltcross Benefice

Shropham, St Peter and St Paul

History of St Peter and St Paul

St Peter and St Paul's Church dates from the mid-13th century and retains elements of the medieval rood screen, now in the west, and pews which date from the 1520. The church was restored in 1867.

St Peter and St Paul's Church is of national importance as an historic building and is Listed Grade I.

The late 15C tower at Shropham has an impressive west front.  It is squarely built with diagonal buttresses, which have black chequerboard flushwork decoration on their faces. There is a west doorway with a large four light window above.  The next stage of the tower seems rather squat and has slit windows, probably more for ventilation than light. 

Thers's so much more to learn about this wonderful parish church, so do visit to take a look for yourself.
