About the museum

St Peter's is beautifully set at the end of a cul de sac drive, near the Manor House, which was built by Richard Nailour in 1613 with a quiet tree shaded churchyard.  The churchyard now has the main line from Kings Cross to the north east with trains frequently running near the western end.  Also nearby is the River Great Ouse and the name of 'Offord' indicates a ford over the river here, possibly the 'Upper Ford' or even 'Oppa's Ford', whilst 'Darcy' indicates the family who owned the manor, as distinct from Cluniac monks who owned the manor of the nearby Offord Cluny. 

Offord Darcy and Offord Cluny adjoin each other on the B1043, south of Huntingdon.  In 1978, All Saints' Offord Cluny became the parish church for both villages.  St Peter's was considered precious enough to be vested to what is now The Churches Conservation Trust, to be preserved as a sacred and beautiful building for people to visit, to be inspired by and to be used for occasional services and events.  To find out more about events, opening arrangements and how to arrange a guided visit to the church, see the Friends' website www.stpetersofforddarcy.co.uk
