St Peter's Church is an Anglican church in the town of Burnley, Lancashire, England. It is an active parish church in the Diocese of Blackburn and the archdeaconry of Blackburn. The oldest part of the church—the lower tower—dates from the 15th century, and there have been several later additions and restorations. St Peter's lies close to the banks of the River Brun. There was a church on the site prior to 1122; this was largely rebuilt in the 1530s by Thomas Sellars and Nicholas Craven.[1] The lower part of the tower is the oldest part of the current building and dates from the 15th of 16th century.
