Friends of St Peter's

The Friends of St Peter's Great Berkhamsted is a charitable trust dedicated to maintaining and enhancing St Peter's Church and the churchyards that belong to it.

St Peter's is a medieval building full of historical and architectural interest at the heart of Berkhamsted. In the eight hundred years of the church's history, we can trace the fortunes of our town. From the war memorials to the chime of bells above the High Street, the rich heritage of St Peter's is cherished by locals and visitors, parishoners and non-churchgoers alike.

Across the road, hidden behind the Rex Cinema, is Rectory Lane Cemetery, a tranquil haven abundant with wildlife, Victorian monuments and Commonwealth War Graves. The Friends is currently undertaking a major project to restore the gravestones, improve the paths and enhance his beautiful green space as an asset for all the community to enjoy.
