A double surprise to find this remote and endearing church still in use and open for visitors.

St Peterís in Lusby has a greenstone nave and chancel with a bellcote replacing a vanished tower.

The blocked north and south doorways are Norman and there are Anglo-Saxon features inside.

Sheep graze contentedly in the churchyard. Well worth the visit.
