St Peter's Church is an active Anglican parish church located in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk. One of the largest churches in the county, it is known as "the Cathedral of the Fens". The largely Perpendicular building is Grade 1 listed, and is often regarded as one of England's finest parish churches.[1][2]

St Peter's was used as the parish church of the fictional village of Fenchurch St Paul in the 1973 television dramatisation of Dorothy L Sayer's novel The Nine Tailors, starring Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey.
