    • Change came in the middle of the 19th century, when after several centuries in which the Church of England ‘s worship had been almost entirely focused on words, the visual discounted as a distraction and music viewed with suspicion, new ideas were coming into fashion.  This change was led in Winchcombe by the appointment in 1833 of John Ridout Harvey as Vicar of Winchcombe and Rector of Sudeley Manor.  Within a year of his appointment the Vestry was discussing whether to re-decorate the walls with white or colour-wash, and over the next 30 years or so the churchyard had been extended, the organ renovated, gas lighting introduced and plans drawn up for a major restoration.  Detailed proposals were submitted in September 1870 by J. Drayton Wyatt, the architect responsible for several local developments and renovations.  Unfortunately, John Ridout Harvey died unexpectedly on January 2nd 1871, aged just 63.
      The plan for the Restoration was put on hold until a new Vicar was appointed. He turned out to be Harvey’s curate, Robert Noble Jackson, who supervised the implementation of the plans, bringing to fruition John Ridout Harvey’s transforming vision. The restoration began on 4th April 1872 and included:
      restoring the chancel roof and clerestory to their original form;
      carving ten new corbels to support the chancel roof trusses;
      replacing all the pinnacles;
      removing the box pews, three decker pulpit and galleries and providing new pews facing towards the high altar;
      raising the level of the sanctuary and replacing the old furnishings;
      removing the plaster from the walls and piers;
      filling the vaults as required and relaying the floor;
      providing a new heating apparatus and cellar;
       moving the organ to the east end of the north aisle; and
      creating a clergy vestry behind it.
      On 6th March 1873 St Peter’s was re-opened for worship in a form more or less recognisable today.
