St Peter's Church, Curdridge is in the Deanery of Bishop's Waltham, Diocese of Portsmouth and in the Patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Winchester.
The Foundation Stone, which can be found outside the South door of the Chancel, was laid by Miss Augusta Burrell of Fainthorne Manor, (now the YMCA National Centre), on the 29 November 1887. The Church was built at a cost of £6,000 by George Dobson, Contractor, of Colchester, to the design of the Ecclesiastical Architect, Sir Thomas G Jackson, ARA, of London, to replace the Chapel of Ease.
The building is in the 15th century English Gothic style. The dimensions are: Nave 64 feet; Chancel 32 feet; span of Chancel 21 feet. The walls are faced outside with flint and have dressings of box ground stone. The wrought masonry of the inside is of chalk from Betchworth Quarries, Surrey. The Tower and Bells were added in 1895. The Church was consecrated on the 6 November 1888 by the Bishop of Winchester, the Rt. Revd. EH Browne. The Churchwardens were Paymaster in Chief, Sir JS Moore, RN and Mr EH Liddell, whose father, the Very Revd. Dr. Henry C Liddell, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford and Chaplain to Queen Victoria, assisted in the service.
STAINED GLASS WINDOWS
On the North side, the first window above the 1914-1918 Memorial is of two great English heroes, King Alfred and St. Alban. Note the head and face of Lionel Lee, in whose memory the window was given, which has been incorporated in the figure of St Alban. Over the 1939-1945 Memorial is the window depicting Jesus, the Good Shepherd and St Peter, the Patron Saint of this Church. The third window is of St Edward and St George, again two typical English heroes.
