Brief Description: St. Peter's Church, Chalvey
Subject Date: About 1907
Owner: Slough Library
Contributor: Slough Library
Full Description: In the 1850s accommodation in St. Mary's and St. Laurence's was insufficient to meet the needs of the expanding population of Slough; services in Chalvey were held in a school room. St. Peter's Church is of interest as it resulted from the efforts of the people of Chalvey who wished for a proper church to serve Chalvey. Their modest weekly subscriptions were helped by an appeal to which Queen Victoria gave £100. Plans for the church were drawn up by G.E. Street, a well-known architect, and the contract was given to G. Harley of Slough. Many of the windows were the work of C.E. Kempe. The first stone was laid in July 1860 and the church was consecrated on 7th September 1861. This postcard was publised by Charles Luff of Slough and is postmarked 3 November 1907.
