Hook Norton, St Peter

The Church of St Peter is at the junction of High Street and Queen Street in the sizable Cotswold village of Hook Norton, famous as the home of the Hook Norton Brewery. I parked on High Street a little way west of the church.

This sizable church is set in the middle of the village and has a fair sized churchyard. The first building was started in the early 10thC with many additions over the centuries. It has a large tower at the west end of the church and the ringing room is reached by climbing 49 stone steps with large risers. The ringing room is large with one window. The entrance to the staircase is inside the church.
