Inside St Peter's Church, Winterbourne Stoke

Recent Photograph of Inside St Peter's Church (Winterbourne Stoke)

Inside - what a disappointment! The dullest interior of the day, largely the fault of the very poor and oppressive roofs of the 19th century. I cannot blame Wyatt for these - a W. Crook was responsible - and to his credit Wyatt would have done better. In more recent times the chancel has been emptied of the expected furniture and carpeted and given comfy upholstered chairs. The north transept is screened off for a vestry, and the south transept is separated from the crossing from very heavy curtains, and now equipped with kitchen cabinets, sink etc.
