Northleach - St Peter and St Paul
Known as The Cathedral of the Cotswolds, the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul has stood at the heart of the small market town of Northleach for at least 800 years. Today it continues to provide a focal point for private prayer and public worship, landmark family occasions and community celebrations.
One of the Cotswold historic "wool" churches, the church features many treasures including its ornate porch, nationally renowned brasses, a pre-reformation high altar, magnificent tower and peal of eight bells, and a rare East facing clerestory window.
The church is celebrated for its light, created in part by improvements made possible by John Fortey in the 16th century and the almost complete absence of stained glass windows.
Northleach Church is part of a wider group of eight churches collectively called the Northleach Benefice - to find out more visit www.northleachbenefice.org
