Interesting and well worth a visit. Stumbled over it on Remembrance Sunday where there was a short service with the local legion branch parading. King John is buried here, there is plenty of history.

The building itself is magnificent. The inside is very well kept by the staff who are also very friendly. If you're lucky enough you'll get the chance to hear the organ and witness its impressive acoustics .
