Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-
"The church of St. Peter-in-Eastgate-with-St.-Margaret is a building of stone, in the Early English style, erected in 1870, from designs by the late Sir A. W. Blomfield, architect, at a cost of about £3,000, and consists of chancel, nave, north aisle, south porch and a western hell cot containing one bell :
the reredos, representing " Our Lord's Commission to St. Peter." was erected in 1884 to the memory of the late F. Burton esq. and his wife, by their four sons: at the same time the walls and roof of the chancel were redecorated, both works being executed from designs by G. F. Bodley esq. A.R.A., F.S.A. architect:
there are eight stained windows:
in 1894 two vestries and a narthex porch were added and an organ provided by Alfred Shuttleworth and Nathaniel C.Cockburn esqrs. as a memorial to the late Nathaniel Clayton esq.:
the organ was reconstructed and enlarged in 1900 at the expense of A. Shuttleworth esq.:
in 1914 a south aisle, a rood and screen were added by A. Shuttleworth esq.:
the church has 350 sittings"
In 2009 the pews were removed and replaced with new chairs.
