We were directed here to park and walk the cliff path to the castle. Upon our return we entered the church and explored the grounds. It was a wonderful little church with an amazing church yard full of old graves and wonderful slate walls.

An interesting church to visit it's a long walk to get there. It's very old and quite dark inside but still of interest. I like to read the grave stones to see what sort of ages people were but there were warning about adders so...More
