Visit St. Peter’s Church, a five minute walk from the Castle to see the famous tomb of Sir Ralph Grey.

St. Peter’s occupies the site of a 12th Century church, retaining some of its Norman stonework. The interior is an unusual mixture of old and new. As well as ancient stone work, 19th century boxed pews, the sanctuary was completely refurbished in 1967, and a millennium plaque recognises that Christian worship has been offered on this site for over a thousand years.

Perhaps most significant is the famous 15th century tomb of Sir Ralph Grey sited in the South Chapel. A detailed description of this tomb was published by the Society of Antiquities.
