A piscina in the chancel of St Peter's church, Stonesby.

The parish church of St Peter is probably Norman in origin, with early 14th century nave, aisles and chancel. The chancel was re-faced in 1667. The piscina in the south wall is probably 14th century, with lancet arch.

In the south aisle is a niche with stilted arch. This could be earlier work incorporated, and may have been an aumbry rather than a piscina. There is no basin for water.
