|St Peter's Church Birkby lies immediately south of Birkby Manor, on the south-western corner of Birkby Lane. The original church building was probably twelfth century, but this was replaced in 1776 by the present Georgian construction. The rectangular Gothic building was extensively altered in 1872 by the Victorians, but some surviving original Norman parts were discovered during the work, including part of the shaft of an old Saxon cross built into the west end wall.
