St Peter's Saltby

This church is now open according to Diocesan and Government guidance.
Saltby Church is open on Tuesdays from 10am to 4pm for private prayer.
We hope those who visit will enjoy the peace and quiet of our lovely village church once again.

The Church of St Peter at Saltby is believed to date from the 12th century with the oldest part believed to be the tower.
The church has a fine peal of 10 bells which create a lot of interest and are very popular.
The stonework suggests that materials were taken from several different quarries;
one form of stone that can be seen is the reddish ironstone, which is indigenous to the Saltby area.

Saltby has existed for a long time - there is evidence of habitation as far back as the Bronze Age,
which was uncovered in a fairly recent archaeological dig in the woods on the Wyville Road where a feature called King Luds entrenchments lies.
