  • You can have a good time watching only the stained-glass windows, they are a true work of art. Inside itself, worth seeing.

  • St Johns is gorgeous outside and in and packed full of history dating back to the 600s. I highly recommend doing the quick free tour--the guide was knowledgeable and pointed out many subtle things of interest. The ruins on the grounds are stunning and definitely worth a wander.
  • A lovely historic church, part of the church is ruined the rest is a thriving pariah church with a friendly vicar. Well worth a visit!
  • The church is adjacent to some wonderful romantic and evocative gothic ruins that are free to explore. Bring your camera!
  • Decent outlet place. The ruins outside are the best bit
  • I went to this church on halloween 2015 took a photo of an empty park from the eastside of church. Next day examined photo it has three ghosts in it, one is a hairy man holding a child the other is a monk. I was close to the arch with the coffin set into it the time was about 10pm the weather was clear and mild, I was with a friend on a ghost tour, the ghosts must have been in Grosvenor Park. This is true!
