The Ruins of St Peter’s Church
The Grade II listed St Peter’s Church was built by Anfred de Staunton in 1320.
It tragically burnt down in 1971 and has been left as a ruin ever since.
There’s been a lot of local rumour as to who exactly set fire to the church, some say it was vandals, some say it was a local mentally ill man whilst other’s blame it on white witches.
The truth is… no really knows for certain who the culprit was or even what caused the fire!
I couldn’t find any legends, myths or stories of ghosts related to St Peter’s in particular.
But, I do know that paranormal teams like to visit the ruins and it’s said that they‘ve picked up evidence of spirits here.
It’s also said that the church has been used as a venue for white witches to perform rituals for decades…
The church is supposed to be of huge significance to white witches and in particular one grave.
I’m sorry… but I don’t know which grave this is!
After visiting the ruins of St Peter’s Church I can totally understand why ghost hunters perform vigils here…
I should think at night it could be quiet an eerie place!
