This is a church steeped in history, where I find the local history interesting, as the church dates back centuries. It's intriguing to think how central a role both this church and St Marys played in forging the town's identity.

This English heritage church houses an exhibition called Buried Lives regarding the skeletons found on site. Very informative and well done. Part of the Church dates from Anglo Saxon times

We were lucky enough to visit Barton upon Humber during the heritage weekend so were able to have a very interesting tour with a local volunteer. A very interesting church with loads of history, also a lovely building.

St Peter's church is an English Heritage site and I was just expecting an old church, but it was much more. This Anglo-Saxon church is well preserved and the space inside is amazing. The church has an exhibition charting the church's history and the boards...More

This church is the one that is used to date all other churches. It has been renovated and filled with interesting artefacts relating to Saxon Britain. Well worth a visit but do check opening times. English Heritage.
