Disgrifiad o´r Safle St Peter's church is located on the north side of the A494 at its junction with the B5429, set within its own walled churchyard used as a cemetery. It was built in 1863 to designs of Poundley and Walker at the expense of John Jesse of Llanbedr Hall, and replaced the medieval church, now a ruin, 400m to the north NPRN 306844). It is a small mid-nineteenth century Gothic revival church with high quality design and detailing, largely unaltered, and substantially complete in its furnishings and fittings.
The church is constructed of squared rock-faced grey stone with polychromatic bands and voussoirs, bathstone dressings and plate tracery, under roofs of slate; the original purple slate roof with grey slate bands and terra-cotta ridge tiles to the nave (stone wheelcrosses to gables), wrought-iron brattishing with wheelcross to chancel. The church comprises nave and narrower chancel, north vestry with steep hipped Frenchy pavilion roof and two-stage chimney, and gabled south porch to the right of which is a square turret with octagonal open bell stage and stumpy columns supporting a spire topped by a wrought-iron wheel cross.
Inside, the four-bay nave is aisleless with scissor-braced roof trusses, alternately arched-braced and supported on foliated stone corbels and tiny columns with shaft-rings, and to the chancel a wooden compartmented waggon roof with diagonal bracing and carved foliate bosses at intersection points. Fittings and furnishings include French Renaissance style oak organ housed in a moulded arched niche on the north side of the chancel next to the vestry doorway; original choirstalls with raised and fielded, cusped, multi-panel fronts and carved foliate decoration to the bench-ends, with supporting ringed shafts; and encaustic tiled pavement by Maw and Co. Stained glass includes works by Clayton & Bell (contemporary), Shrigley & Hunt (1893), and James Powell & Sons (1886).
