St Peter's Saltby

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.
