St. Peter in the East Church (Oxford)

St. Peter in the East Church is one of the old churches in the historic city of Oxford.

With its unassuming tower, it is tucked away in Queens Lane, among the narrow lanes between The High and Broad Street, and beside the mediaeval St. Edmund Hall.

The church has a Norman chancel and South door, as well as a crypt dated about 1150.

In St. Peter's is the tomb of James Sadler, a laboratory assistant at the old Ashmolean Museum, who made the first English balloon ascent, from Christ Church Meadow, in 1784.
