The body of the famous Sir Robert Peel was entombed at the Church in 1850 and it was in his memory that, 3 years later, the building was enlarged and improved by his family. Later again, in 1875, the Peels made further changes including stained glass windows, internal furniture and organ, transforming the building into St. Peter's almost as it stands today.
