The church itself is an amazing piece of Tamworth, however I found the member of the book shop inside very 'mean'. The church is obviously open to anyone, any time, however she acted like she ran the place

Lovely church, worth a visit. Someone was playing the piano/organ when we visited which added to the experience. Admire the architecture or sit quietly and enjoy the atmosphere.

This is a great little church. Well, not so little, but not so big either. It's beautiful and peaceful inside. If you go during a sunday service, the people are friendly and the Vicar is warm and welcoming.
