St. Peter’s Church

St. Peter’s Church, or Bishop J.W. Colenso’s Cathedral, stands at the corner of Church and Chapel  Streets.   Sophy Grey, wife of the  Bishop of Cape Town,  probably drew  the  first sketches. The  stained  glass  windows  were brought  from  a  pre-Reformation  Abbey  in England and are believed to be of Flemish origin.

The important role that this church played in the diocese of Natal came to an end with the death of John William Colenso in 1883.  He was buried in front of the altar.
