About This Image

Barton-on-Humber is unusual for having two medieval churches less than 100m apart. St Peter's is the older, and the tower and baptistry you see here are saxon, and over 1000 years old.

St Peters Church, Beck Hill is made up of two thirds of an Anglo Saxon church with a fully developed and later church added onto its east end by various stages of demolishing and rebuilding. In 13th century this two apses were destroyed as well as a narrow south aisle which was removed to make way for a much broader onewas added on the north side.again your master class in buildings comes through Steve
