St. Peter's Church - Normanby

St. Peter’s is close to Ermine Street, a vital artery in Roman Britain, and it has early 12th to 15th century stonework of good quality. There are fine limestone arcades with beautifully carved capitals and a sturdy and handsome tower. Foundations of a former apse (semi-circular east end of a chancel or chapel) are visible, and further research may show that the church is of earlier date than the 12th century. 18th century additions include interesting Benefaction Boards.
