It was being decorated with poppies during our visit, had a lovely chat to several volunteers who offered advice on where else to visit during our stay. Well worth a visit for the stained glass windows.

Just called in from the hustle and bustle of town shopping and had a quick look round. Would like to return to look in more detail. The ladies on duty were very friendly and welcoming without wanting to push information at you.

Popped in as never been into Tamworth town centre before. Had to get past builders' vans first of all and then once inside there's scaffolding in the chancel. In the NW corner is a bit of a sprawling book shop/souvenir shop that is best described...More
