The Church of St. Peter ad Vincula, South Newington

The late norman Church of St. Peter ad Vincula (St. Peter in Chains) is named after the basilica of San Pietro in Vincoli in Rome. The church is one of only 15 in England dedicated to St Peter ad Vincula. The church was considerably extended at the end of the 13th century, when the bell tower was added. Further additions were made in the second half of the 15th century. The church has some very fine wall paintings dating from the 14th century which are thought to be among the finest in the country. They include a rare painting of the martyrdom of Thomas a Becket, and others from the 15th & 16th centuries.
