Church of St. Peter and Paul, Wisbech

A 15th century reconstruction of an originally Norman structure forms the base of this church, which was restored numerous times including in 1858 under architect William Bassett-Smith.

Located under a magnificent stained glass window, the Salviati reredos of The Last Supper was designed by Clayton and Bell, and it was unveiled in 1885.
