History of St Peter and St Paul’s church, Wantage, Berkshire.

At some point in the 13th century, a large cruciform church was built, however only the only the west walls of  both transepts and the central crossing tower remain (No, I’ve got no idea how they managed that either). During  the 14th century, the nave was demolished and rebuilt  with aisles of four bays.  The Chancel was either rebuilt or extended by one bay at a similar period.

Early in the 15th century the the end of the north transept was rebuilt with a small chapel to the east of it.  Later the same century the chancel was again largely rebuilt, the misericords date from this time, with the addition of a vestry, and chapels to both north and south.  A chapel was also added to the east of the south transept.  Late in the 15th century, north and south porches were added, and either at this time, or early in the 16th century, the nave clerestory was added.

In the mid-19th century the church was restored by George Street, who inserted the east window.  The nave has been extended by and additional one bay, and the  south porch has been reconstructed 2 bays west of its original position.

Sir John Betjeman lived nearby to the church and was inspired to write “Summoned by the Bells”

St Peter and St Paul’s does not appear, as of October 2008 to have its own website, but the Wantage site is very useful
