St Peter's church in Norton Disney has much work from the Early English and Decorated periods.

The font & screen are Perpendicular, the communion rail seventeenth-century.

Worth visiting even without the tenuous connection to the creator of Mickey Mouse.

An interesting church with some unusual features, one of which is the pair of straight-headed windows, one above the other, in the south transept - almost in domestic style.

The church was extensively restored in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The tower of St Peter's church dates from the Early English period but the bell openings, battlements, gargoyles and pinnacles were added a little later.

The arch into the south transept (to the right) is four-centred.

The chancel screen dates from the Perpendicular period. On the south (right) side of the chancel arch is a blocked doorway to the rood stair.
