Aubourn St Peter is an Ancient parish which includes Marlborough, Houdsham and Haddington. Part of the parish boundary neighbours the extra parochial place of Morton.
The ancient parish church was replaced in 1862 at a new site; it was restored in 1933 but closed in 1968 and was demolished in 1973 - the tower and one wall were retained as a monument.
A Heritage Lottery Fund grant in 2004 permitted restoration of part of the building and maintenance of the Auborn clock tower by Auborn and Haddington Parish Council.
The original church close to Auborn Hall had been maintained as a mortuary chapel and was reduced to a chancel. It is now the parish church
