St Peter in the East is an unusual church because its Norman chancel was raised above a crypt. The crypt was probably intended to display sacred relics, and there is an arrangement of passages and stairways suggesting a route for visitors. Such a design was rare for a parish church, and more likely to be seen in a cathedral.
