The Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul, Belton

The parish church of St Peter and St Paul was first recorded in the Domesday Book and has features from the Norman, late MediŠval, Georgian and Victorian periods. The earliest is the north arcade, with its massive central pier decorated with the form of incised lozenges as found in Norman cathedrals such as at Durham. The lower part of the west tower is also Norman, ca1200.

The character and appearance of the church changed considerably during the early parts of the nineteenth century. Sir Jeffry Wyatville altered the tower with a false entrance and built the north memorial chapel. The interior was restored during the Victorian period when the nave received a new ceiling.
