Artist's Description

Built in the 14th century, St Peters church in Irthlingborough, Northamptonshire (UK) was originally a college for six secular canons. It has lantern tower, which is unusual for the area (they are normally normally associated with churches on the Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire fens). When it was built the valley between the neighbouring town was un-drained and prone to heavy fogs, and so fires would be lit in the lantern to guide travellers across the Nene and marshes.
