In 2022 St Peter’s Church celebrated its 800th Anniversary.
St Peter’s Church has been at the heart of the Berkhamsted community in Hertfordshire since 1222. In 2022 the church celebrated its 800th anniversary with a year of community events including a summer fête, concerts, hikes, ceilidhs, choral services, art workshops and photography exhibitions. On Advent Sunday, thousands visited the church to see it lit up by candles.
Berkhamsted Local History and Museum Society (BLHMS) supported the celebration by recording a year of festivities. This video has been produced to commemorate this historic occasion, produced and filmed by Barney Greenwood.
