St Peter's in the Highfields area of Leicester was built between 1872-9 to the designs of leading Victorian architect George Edmund Street. It is a handsome building with a long nave culminating in a shallow transept and apse at the east end, whilst a sturdy tower terminates the west end (originally crowned by a spire).

Internally the focus is on the apsed chancel though the nave is now divided part way through by a glazed screen, leaving the west end as an open area beyond. There is some particularly fine Arts & Crafts stained glass in the chancel and west window.

The church is in frequent community use and thus is open often during the day, though generally not on Mondays, thus I owe a big thankyou to Barbara Merry from the Leicester Stained Glass Appreciation group for organising this visit.
