Barton Church, Cambridgeshire

St Peters was looking very attractive with all the Easter flowers when we visited on Wednesday, The present church dates from the 14th century though earlier records exist back to Domesday. The carved screen with its fine detail is thought to date from about 1370, and was obviously brightly coloured. The pulpit is hexagonal and was once part of a three decker pulpit. It bears the date 1635. The font consists of a fourteenth century stem of clunch, topped by a limestone bowl. The wall paintings date from the 14th century. They depict various saints and stories from the Bible.
