The Parish Church of St. Peter

This large church was once linked to a cell of the Abbey of Bec in Normandy.  The 13th century west tower is a massive structure with an interesting belfry window.  The arcades of the nave are unequal with regard to the number of arches in each.  That on the south side is blocked up; it may have been used by the vanished Priory.
