A south-west view in ink of the church of St Peter's in the Arches (St Peter at Arches) in Lincoln. It was built in 1724 by Lincoln Council for use in the council's civic services, and stood next to the Guildhall. Its fine organ was built in the 19th century by Father Willis, who also built Lincoln Cathedral's present organ. In the early 20th century, the church was in the way of urban development and due to be demolished. It was saved by local parishioners, who had it literally moved up the hill - organ, bells and all - to become part of the estate of St Giles' church.
