St. Peter's Church, Hartshorne, consists of a nave, chancel, north aisle and tower at the west end of the aisle. The nave was entirely rebuilt in 1835, and other alterations made. A sketch of the church from the south just before the alterations shows that all the windows on the south side were square-headed except a lancet window to the chancel. The tower once had arches both in the east and south walls, communicating with the church, but these are now built up. (1) In normal use.
