  • Great church with plenty of history. If you get chance to climb the dual-spiral stair case on one of the open days it's well worth the effort to see the views and visit the bell tower
  • Site of church for over 1,200 years, with double spiral staircase in the tower which can be visited on open days. Impressive large vaulted interior with medieval fragments of stained glass in the vestry east window and a giant sized marble sculpture beneath the tower. The church is open every weekday from 10am to 3pm, together with Saturday mornings. Tea, coffee and bookshop inside. Friendly staff and toilets in the vault.
  • Very beatiful.
