Parts of the church of St. Peter date from the early 1300s, but it has been restored and altered throughout the centuries. More recently, the old box pews were removed from the north aisle and in 1974 the east end of the north aisle was made into a baptistry. The present font replaced the Victorian font and is late Norman. It came from the now redundant church at Monkton Deverill. Stourton is pronounced Sturton!
