St. Peter's church
St Peter's is the parish church of Forncett. It was originally built circa 1000 AD and the great Saxon round tower remains from that date, complete almost to the top, and considered to be the best Saxon round tower in England. Only the parapet is relatively modern. The main building is of later, mainly 14th and 15th century date. There is a magnificent north porch with the symbols of St Peter and St Paul, perhaps indicating the medieval dedication of the church. Unusually, there is a west door into the tower which has a unique ancient staircase and the fine ring of six bells.
