St PETER’S, Heysham

St PETER’S, Heysham
St PETER’S, Heysham

The earliest church that stood on this site overlooking Morecambe Bay was Anglo-Saxon, quite probably 8th century - some think earlier. Parts of a Saxon church have been rebuilt in the churchyard, where there is also the remains of an Anglo-Saxon cross and a medieval stone coffin. Inside the church is a 10th century Viking hogback stone. St Peter's was rebuilt and refurbished from later medieval times and up to the 19th century.
