St Peter, Siddington, Glos on Flickr.
On the outer edge of Cirencester, but still feeling separate. As you approach the church everything looks Victorian, but the north side of the church is fine C17 Gothic with very large square-headed windows to this aisle. The south-porch tower also shelters a fine Norman doorway. The tympanum shows “Christ in Majesty flanked by two kneeling figures, one St Peter, the other possibly a donor” (BofE) but the central figure holds the keys, the figure to the left has a halo, the one on the right not so is this St Peter sitting in judgement? Inside the chancel arch is Transitional with a pointed arch but the familiar Norman enrichments to the outer two orders. The C19 work is good, and by Woodyer. The aisle has a fine original panelled roof resting on angel-carrying-shields corbels, and an east window with two nuches to the left but none on the right, an unusual arrangement. Norman too the richly carved drum-shaped font with a jaunty neo-Norman conical cover suspended over. [church locked, but keyholders listed]
