NAVE 
The nave stretches from the church entrance through to the chancel, offering ample space. Dual aspect windows to both side elevations are primarily leaded, rather than stained glass and allow for a lot of natural light which compliments the high, painted ceilings perfectly.

 

THE CHANCEL

ALTAR 
This area is dominated by three large stained glass windows located above and behind the altar. 

 

BAPTISTRY

There is a plaque which confirms Arthur Stanley Laurels baptism, (More commonly known as Stan Laurel from Laurel and Hardy), in October 1891, which was carried out within St Peter's Church when his family moved to Bishop Auckland.

 

CHOIR & CLERGY VESTRIES 
Located off the Chancel are both the Choir and Clergy Vestries, offering meeting/office space away from the main body of the church.

POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT 
This spacious Grade II Listed Church offers any buyer a range of potential uses (restrictive covenants apply).
