St. Peter and St. Paul Church (Syston)

St. Peter and St. Paul is the parish church of the small Leicestershire town of Syston, which lies on the Fosse Way to the North of Leicester.

It stands between Upper Church Street and Lower Church Street, both off the High Street.

Parts of the church date back to the 13th century, and it has a large impressive Perpendicular tower, and early sedilia.

There is impressive woodcarving by W. D. Caroe, including the pulpit, stalls, screens and organ case.

High up on the outside of the tower is some curious stonework, depicting a man flanked by two women. It is said to be a former vicar and his two wives, although whether he was widowed and remarried, or married to both at the same time, remains unclear.
