  • Superb from the outside, good inside. Teas served. Pop in to worship or admire. Easily located in the market place.  more »
  • Cheap tea/coffee & biscuits in a very friendly church. Interesting history shown on the wall. Known as The Church in the Marketplace.  more »
  • The dominant feature in the Market Square, externally the building is lovely. It wasn't open when we visited so not sure on the access arrangements. Worth a visit and a few snaps but thats it !  more »
