Church of St Peter

St Peter's church in Redcar was originally consecrated by the Archbishop of York in 1829 as a 'Chapel of Ease' of the parish of Marske. In 1835 a clock was added to the church paid for by a local resident, Mrs Walton.The clock only has two faces, one to the north and the other to the west, as at that time there were only open fields to the south. The church was extended in 1848 to cater for growth in the population of Redcar. In 1867 St Peter’s was established as an independent Parish of Redcar. In 1926 there was another extension; the Lady Chapel, Chancel and children’s chapel.[1] The church is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
