We were taken here by friends who live in the area to show us what a true English village should look like, and undoubtedly in the not too distant past there were many who resembled this lovely town. The church itself is in the center...More

Very quaint little Church. Beautiful inside and worth a visit. Obviously a well looked after church which involves the local community

Interesting history. Typical country church worth visiting for reflection and prayer. The locals have added a guide around the graveyard mainly of plants. The dead didn't disturb the visit at all.

If you like old churches then this ones a must. Some of the carving is exquisite. There's lots of plaques to read so allow yourself plenty of time to wander round.
