St Peter's Church, Delamere is in an isolated position to the south of the village of Delamere, Cheshire, England. The church has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building. It is an active Anglican parish church in the diocese of Chester, the archdeaconry of Chester and the deanery of Middlewich.
The church is built in ashlar buff Manley sandstone with a Welsh slate roof. Its plan consists of a west tower with a south porch, a two-bay nave, a south aisle, short transepts, and a single-bay chancel. It is in Decorated style. The small tower has diagonal buttresses and simple bands at each stage. On the south side is a clock face. The tower has an embattled parapet on a band containing gargoyles. Above this is a pyramidal cap.
Beneath the west window is a brass plaque recording the laying of the foundation stone and the architect's name. The stained glass in the east window is dated 1906 and is by Herbert Bryans. The two-manual organ was built by P. Conacher.
In the churchyard is a buff sandstone sundial dating from the early 19th century. It consists of a bulbous baluster on a circular stone base with a capital of acanthus leaves which carries the original circular plate with italic Roman numerals. It is listed Grade II.
