  • This is a beautiful Abbey. The stained glass is of varying quality - some of the Victorian glass has lost the details of faces for example. However there is much here of interest. The modern icons are particularly beautiful - they were written by John Coleman.
  • Beautiful Abbey with plenty of history. Ceilings and stained glass to rival any. Set in a delightful little village. Parking is a bit difficult mainly pay and display but close to the main line station. Great place for a wedding though.
  • Amazing vaulted ceiling. Beautiful stonework and lots to see.
  • The peace and quiet of a market town reflected both inside and outside.
  • A nice Placebo. You Feeling Thema Spirit of thus holy ground
