The Church of St Peter in Huntspill, Somerset, England was established by 1208, rebuilt around 1400, and extended in the early to mid 15th century. It was gutted by fire in 1878 and restored over the next two years. It has been designated as a Grade I listed building.
Before the Norman Conquest the Christian community at Huntspill was given by Offa of Mercia to Glastonbury Abbey. In the 13th century it was given to Tickford Priory at Newport Pagnell until it was taken under the control of the Bishop of Wells. Since the 18th century the patronage has been held by Balliol College, Oxford. The church's original dedication was to All Saints which changed to St Peter around 1872 and then in the 1950s the dedication to St Peter and All Hallows was adopted.
Refurbishment work to glass the lady chapel and the north door during 2011 was delayed when the company carrying out the work went into receivership.
