St Pegas Church and medieval wallpaintings

Heritage Open Day: 14th Century wall paintings are the most striking feature of Peakirk church, but its fabric dates from the early 11th to 15th century. Join us for stories of Anglo-Saxon rivalries and misdeeds behind its founding. Guided tours are also available. The most striking feature of St Pegas Church is its extensive 14th century wall paintings, including a passion sequence and a St Christopher, as well as two lively morality paintings. The smaller (and rarer) of these depicts two women enjoying a good gossip, encouraged by a devil pushing their heads together, while a larger painting depicts the story of the three living and the three dead, illustrating the transience of life and the meaninglessness of material pleasure.
