The church is still surrounded by a largely walled cemetery closed by a beautiful entrance gate from 1861. An iron gate hangs from two high square bluestone fence pillars with convex crowns. A pedestrian passage is marked on either side by a round bluestone post. Originally the cemetery was closed off to the street by a high iron fence on a bluestone wall, which was removed in the 1950s

The late Gothic church, dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul, was built in 1452 on the initiative of Pieter Bladelin near his newly built castle. In 1458 the construction of the church was completed and P. Bladelin acquired parish rights for his church. In 1470 a chapter of six canons was attached to the church and in 1480 the church was made a Collegiate Chapter. Before 1559, the parish came under the diocese of Tournai, deanery Aardenburg, later the deanery and the parish belonged to the diocese of Bruges, now the parish falls under the diocese of Ghent, deanery Maldegem.
