The windows in the south aisle - as seen here on the left - of St Peter's are from the Decorated period.

By contrast the chancel is Early English and has this unusual window with plate tracery (right).

The former Wesleyan Chapel, designed by Richard Coulson* of Hull, opened in 1889. It is situated on Townside at the southern edge of the village.

The last service was held in 1953 when the two Methodist societies in the village combined and used the Primitive Methodist chapel.

It now serves a the village hall.
