The 14th century Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul stands on the banks of the River Great Ouse at Olney in north Buckinghamshire. The church is where slave trader turned abolitionist John Newton – author of the hymn Amazing Grace – served as curate from 1764 to 1779. There is a stained glass image of him at the church, as well as a representation of his ship in storm during which he converted to Christianity.
