The Church of St Peter in the parish of Headon-cum-Upton is in the Gothic Perpendicular style and has a squat, short west tower. It is crenallated and has a high nave.
The Gothic style (12th-16th centuries) is characterised by strong vertical lines, high vaulted ceilings, pointed window and door openings and buttressed walls, and falls between the Romanesque and Renaissance periods. Gothic Perpendicular (1375-1540) is further marked by the use of horizontal and perpendicular lines.
