Saturday 14th September 10.00am – 5.00pm

When friends and family come to visit in Peter Tavy, many of us will take them out to show off some of our area’s rich heritage, from the historic buildings of Tavistock to the beautiful National Trust properties around us. But don’t forget, here in the village we have an ancient historic treasure of our own – open every day to visitors and holding some fascinating artefacts and stories.

Saturday September 14th is “Devon Historic Churches” day, and from 10.00am to 5.00pm we will be holding an “open day” at St Peter’s, with guides on hand if needed to tell you more about the 900+ years of history of the building – and show you around some of its lesser-known corners. (Hopefully, you may also get a chance to ascend the tower steps and see our historic bells!) We’ll also offer you a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits while you look around.

In the afternoon, there’ll be an organised walk starting from the village at around 3.00pm, aiming to return to the Village Hall around 5.00pm, where we’ll be laying on a buffet tea.

Why not take this chance to come and have a look round? Next time you have visitors, you can bring them up to see Peter Tavy’s own historic treasure too.

We look forward to welcoming you, helping you discover more about our church and its long, long history – and joining us for the walk and the buffet tea.
