St Peter's Church, Droitwich Spa

The Vestry of St. Peter's church was built in 1973 dedicated to the memory of Edward Winslow who was baptised in this church in 1595. Edward Winslow then went on to be one of the Mayflower Pilgrims who sailed on the Mayflower and he served 3 times as Governor of the Plymouth colony.

Originally there would have been a wooden Saxon church on the site of St Peters, however no traces of it remain today. The current church building still retains parts of its original Norman building including the chancel arch which is a fine example of the Norman style.

The Church was extended in the 12th century to the south. The south east window contains a very old example of stained glass work. There was another extension to the north side of the building added in the 14th Century. The tower was built in 1500 AD and the church we still see today was completed.

The Vestry was built onto the church in 1973 dedicated to the memory of Edward Winslow who was baptised in this church in 1595. Edward Winslow then went on to be one of the Mayflower Pilgrims who sailed on the Mayflower and he served three times as Governor of the Plymouth colony.
