Harrison's description (1911):

ST. PETER. This E.E. church was very interesting on account of its mural paintings, representing (on E. wall of nave and chancel arch) the Martyrdom of St. Thomas à Becket, SS. Katherine and Margaret, etc., St Michael Weighing Souls, Incredulity of St. Thomas, etc . - 13th c. work; (on N. wall of nave) The Last Supper, The Nativity, and the Adoration of the Magi. The disastrous fire of 1906 unfortunately destroyed the greater part of them. There are two piscinæ; triple sedilia; and old disused font. The altar-tomb (Perp.) of Edward Elrington is a fine piece of work; Dr, Cheynell's tomb should also be noted. The old bells were damaged by the fire, but have been recast. Reg. 1538.
