  • Super little church with interesting wall paintings / frieze depicting the history of the church and village. So pleased the church is open to visitors.

  • Quite large for such a small village but in the grounds of the large Ilam Hall. Attractive setting and worth a quick visit

  • Set in beautiful surrondings this church has history, culture and is a great stop off point if you walking from Ilam Park to the Dovedale steppping stone.

  • Very interesting old church. The cross shafts outside and the font are Saxon and the tomb of St Bertram seems to be a site of pilgrimage. Lots of information sheets inside. Fascinating and peaceful.
  • It was very nice and quiet place. Small historic church with typical smell and atmosphere.
  • Cosy and welcoming. Remembrance Day - pictures and histories of local casualties in the pews, gave sacrifices made a more personal touch.
  • Ilam is a very pretty little village with a manor house (now a YHA property), Swiss-style houses and a delightful and historic church. The surrounding landscape is beautiful. It's well worth a visit, particularly on a sunny day. Early in August there is a pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Bertram in the church.
  • Beautiful Church in idyllic location, a must visit.
