Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Peter's was designed by Sir John Soane and built at a cost of 18,592. The foundation stone was laid on 2 June 1823 and the church was consecrated on 28 February 1825. During the Second World War, tragedy struck Saint Peter's when 84 people sheltering in the undercroft were killed in an air raid. Ironically, the damage to the church itself was not extensive. The church was thus restored by Thomas L. Ford and reopened in 1953.
