St. Peters Church (Hereford)

St. Peters is a mediaeval church in Hereford City Centre.

Originally founded as a collegiate church in 1035, it was rebuilt in the 14th century and modernised in the Victorian period.

It has long been the civic church of Hereford.

The church is situated where St. Owen Street widens out into High Town. It has the Town Hall, Shire Hall and War Memorial for company, while a short way along the street is the famous Old House.

St. Peters is constructed of the local pink sandstone, and has a covered walkway, reminiscent of the seaside, in front.

Inside, there is an exhibition of the life and works of John Venn, Herefords Victorian philanthropist.
