Celebrating the past, investing in the future
The Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul has stood at the heart of the town on Northleach for at least 800 years. Today it continues to provide a focal point for private prayer and public worship, landmark family occasions and community celebrations.
One of the Cotswold "wool" churches, the church features many treasures including its ornate porch, nationally renowned brasses, a pre-reformation high altar, magnificent tower and peal of eight bells, and a rare East facing clerestory window.
The church is celebrated for its light, create in part by improvements made possible by John Fortey in the 16th century and the almost complete absence of stained glass windows.
Maintaining and repairing Northleach church for future generations is a never-ending task, and as a Friend of Northleach Church, your help and support is needed now.
