St. Peter’s Church is Grade II* listed.The tower is mediaeval, but much of the rest of the church was rebuilt by the Victorians.

The Victorians used the local Triassic sandstone for the re-build, but made mistakes in how it was used. They installed blocks and window tracery with the stone ‘edge bedded’ with the result that weather and frost caused premature failure of the stone.

Stonework renewal and associated glazing repairs were funded in part by the English Heritage and Heritage Lottery Fund grant scheme, but also by considerable local fundraising efforts.

The incredible efforts of a small village to keep open their church have been recognised in various ways - not only was the PCC and Shackerstone Church RestorationTrust finalists in the ‘Heritage Angels’ award scheme, but the Restoration Trust was also in 2012 awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
