Wiggenhall St Peter
Inside, much of interest remains; the low seats beneath the Perpendicular windows, sedilia, piscina, two aumbries, the stone outlining of the Priest door in the chancel. Best of all, perhaps, a considerable number of corbels and headstops carved into faces and animals.
The chancel arch survives, as does the arch of the east window, and most of the tracery remains in the nave windows. A landmark on the river, St Peter sits at the end of a long narrow lane with a few houses for company. It must be bleak in winter, but it was a pleasant spot on this bright and breezy day; I sat for a while and watched them bringing in the harvest in the field across the lane.
