A Portrait of Wolverhampton

Part Two

St. Peter's Church.
St. Peter's dominates the centre of Wolverhampton. The original church was built in 994 by Lady Wulfruna, although nothing of this now remains.

The present Church dates from 1425, the central tower was completed in about 1480. It has since been greatly extended, the north transept and the gallery date from the 16th century and the west end of the nave dates from 1616. In 1867 the chancel was rebuilt, and St. Peter's gardens were laid out in 1883.

An interesting and detailed view of a fine old church. The church bears a plaque commemorating Lady Godiva who is known to have owned land in the Penn area. Near the church is the stone base of a Saxon Cross.
