St. Peter, Frampton Cotterell, Gloucestershire


The church of St. Peter, a building of stone in the Anglo-Norman (Transition) style, was rebuilt, with the exception of the tower, in 1858, by the late Rev. W. C. Fox, then curate and patron of the living and afterwards rector, at a cost of £10,000, in the Perpendicular style, and now consists of chancel, nave of five bays, aisles, south porch and an embattled western tower with pinnacles containing 6 bells: the east end of the north aisle forms the chapel of St. Mary, and the east end of the south aisle that of St. John: the east window and eleven others are stained: there is a brass with long inscription to John Symes esq. M.P. for the county of Somerset, 21 James I. (1623-24), who died in 1661, and Amy (Horner) his wife, with others to former rectors of the parish: in the church, and chained to the stand on which it rests, is a copy of Bishop Jewel's "Apology for the Church of England," dated 1568: there are 526 sittings.
