  • Lovely understated church, frequented by The Queen and other members of the Royal Family. Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall got married here. When we first passed by the church was closed but we were able to walk around the grounds, however the following day we were fortunate to be passing when it was open for viewing. The volunteers on duty that day were very helpful and knowledgeable and I must give a special mention to Anne and Anne who made our visit even better than it would otherwise have been with lots of interesting facts and information.
  • A very interesting church and cemetery. Worth a visit.
  • Walked round the graveyard which was very interesting and very old.
  • Interesting heraldic banners.
  • A 12th century church founded by King David after he fought off a white stag near the grounds of the church.
