St Peter's Church, Clayworth, is open all day, everyday for you.  It is God's house and everyone is welcome.

This beautiful church was built between 1150 and 1180 and is situated on the main street which runs through this charming north Nottinghamshire canalside village, 6 miles north of Retford.  It is a Grade I listed building and is regarded as one of the finest village churches in the county.

It is home to the Traquair Murals, the largest work of art in the East of England, painted by the eminent Scottish artist Phoebe Traquair in 1904/5. The church also features a fine 13th century stone screen - a rare possession in a village church, and the Elizabethan Fitzwilliam tomb, one of the earliest examples of decorative plasterwork in the country.  A visit is highly recommended - we are open all day, every day to welcome you.

For those from outside the area,  the nearest railway station is Retford, on the East Coast mainline (London-Edinburgh). It is also just 5 miles from the A1 and not far from the M1 and M18 and cross Pennine routes. The nearest airport is Doncaster Robin Hood.

Services are held on Sundays, mostly at 11am, and  on Thursdays at 9.30am, and you will find service times and details for this month and next elsewhere on the website.
