Artist's Description

St Peters Church, Iver, Bucks, UK

A stone church had been built to serve the needs of Iver (then known as
Evre, Evreham, Ever or Eure) at least by the later eleventh century. It would
have been a small building, with a nave, which still exists as the lower part of
the present nave, and a short chancel in which the altar stood. The East end
would probably have been square or semi-circular. The position of at least
one door, in the wide pier between the two Norman arches on the North side
of the nave, was revealed in the course of restoration in 1848. (The Saxon
church at Bradford-on-Avon also has a door in the North wall as its main
entrance.) The roof would almost certainly have been of thatch and the floor
of beaten earth, with a few benches round the walls for the aged and infirm as
the only seating.
