Came here 40 years ago, then again just this week. Take 20 mins out from your holiday, make a small donation and enjoy the quiet time. It's beautiful inside and out and the stained glass windows are stunning.

Beautiful church with lots of history. Very interesting. Disabled access which was very good. Although toilet was outside for disabled. This needs looking at for out of season visitors.
