Interior of the church of St Peter and St Paul, Wisbech, showing "the complicated group of arches at the North-east corner of the principal nave. It has been observed that the chancel is wider than the nave. The junction is effected most ingeniously by an arch thrown across obliquely in the Decorated time from the Norman pier, while the clere-story wall above is continued nearly in a straight line by help of an arch of the Perpendicular time. At this point the pulpit is placed, so conveniently that the preacher commands the North aisle, as well as the whole space of the interior to the West and South."

Text by the Vicar of Wisbech J S Howson from the book 'The Fen and Marshland Churches'.
