Tower and spire St. Peter and St. Clare Fenny Compton

14th century parish church of St. Peter and St. Clare, Fenny Compton. Extensive remodeling of the aisle and arcade occurred late in the century when the tower was added. The clerestory was added in the 16th century, however there is no trace of the original 14th century flat roof. All the windows are modern stonework, except for those in the north clerestory which are 16th century. The roof was restored in 1879.

The communion rails have turned balusters of the 17th century.
