St Peter's Church Clearwell

Situated next to Clearwell Castle, St Peter’s Church holds a lovely position that complements the village. The Dowager Countess of Dunraven commissioned the church upon her return to Clearwell Court in 1855.
Under the guidance of architect John Middleton in 1863, construction of the church commenced. It replaced an older church from 1828, which stood on the site of the Clearwell Cemetery Chapel.
The church is a splendid example of the mid-19th-century “French Gothic” style. Its exquisite design features intricate stone carvings and a stunning stenciled roof. The chancel boasts stained glass windows created by Hardman. Additionally, the ornate organ, crafted by Telford of Dublin, renowned as Ireland’s master organ builder, adds to the church’s allure.
Enhancing its appeal, St Peter’s Church showcases an impressive avenue of yew trees. Its proximity to Clearwell Castle contributes to its popularity as a sought-after wedding venue.
