The Church of St Peter and St Paul, Northleach is one of the finest Cotswold wool churches. The church has been called "The Cathedral of the Cotswolds". In the medieval period the Cotswold region was famous for the quality of the wool it produced. So prized was this wool that many wool merchants became fabulously wealthy by the standards of their time. Some of this wealth was lavished on their local churches.
The origins of he church goes back to at least the 12th century, but much of what we can see today dates from the 15th century. The earlier church consisted of little more than an aisle, but in the 13th century the chancel was added, with the nave, sacristy, and aisles to follow in the following century.
The prevailing style of St Peter and St Paul's is meant to showcase the large traceried expanse of stained glass windows, and this it accomplishes very well indeed! The two story porch (c.1420) is perhaps the most striking in the Cotswolds region if not the entire UK. The battlemented exterior is graced with a large statue of John the Baptist, the patron saint of the wool trade.
