ST PETER HUNGATE GUIDEBOOK

BACK TO ALL PRODUCTS

Hungate is a special place.

In the medieval period the parish was home to a bustling community that included the famous Paston family, who had a house on Elm Hill. They contributed to the lavish rebuilding of the church in the mid 15th century. The glorious angel roof, wonderful stained glass and large nave windows are testament to their wealth, taste and faith.

The church’s historical significance is not confined to the medieval period. In the 20th century, St Peter Hungate was the focus of a ground-breaking experiment, when it became the first Anglican church since the Reformation to be given a new and permanent secular use, as a museum.

Telling these fascinating stories, and others, our guidebook is based on new research and lavishly illustrated.
