We are blessed to have an ancient church on an historic site in the parish.
Excavations in 1958 and 1985 revealed a Roman mosaic under the churchyard indicating a settlement during the Roman occupation of England in the 2nd to 5th centuries AD.
The earliest written evidence of a church in Maniford as the village was named in the 1086 Domesday Book this led to a celebration of St Peter’s millennium in 1991 conducted by the Bishop of Ramsbury.
The church is in fact Norman built in the 10th or 11 century with some Saxon elements in its doorways and deeply splayed side windows.
The walls are in places 4 feet thick and the original heavy wooden door has a primitive lock which is still in daily use touched by numerous hands of history
In more recent times a list has been added to the south wall bearing the names of 41 residents who fought in the Great War 1914-1918 and in the churchyard there is a further memorial.
Burials in the quiet and pretty churchyard continue amongst the older tombs some of which are classed as listed buildings.
The PCC is responsible for decisions about St. Peters Church. For a full explanation about the role of the PCC please click on Salisbury Diocesan website PCC meetings are held every other month.
