Famous facts:

  • Bloody Mary, Queen Mary I of England executed our vicar, John Hullier (1520 – 1556). He was vicar of Babraham from 1549 and served the parish for about six years. On April 16 1556, Maundy Thursday, he was burned at the stake on Jesus Green in Cambridge for heresy (refusing to renounce the Protestant faith).

Beautiful graveyard

  • John Piper Window – The East Window originally of plain glass, was replaced with the present window in 1966. It was designed by John Piper in partnership with Patrick Reytiens, who also worked together on windows at Coventry Cathedral, Robinson College Cambridge and other remarkable locations. The window consists of ‘lights’ symbolising the life and work of St Peter the Apostle and Martyr, and Patron Saint of the church
