As we arrived, the Church was closing and the gates were being locked. We pleaded entry and the fabulous people from the Churches Conservation Trust opened up the church for us. It is not a staggeringly beautiful church, but what is interesting are the rare wooden pew boxes, ancient stained glass windows and 13th century grave slabs. It is a... More

This church has seen and change a lot in its 800 year history. Very knowledgable and dedicated docents, ask them questions. Make a point to find this.

Quaint old church. Very peaceful. I sometimes go in there to have a quiet moment. The grounds are sweet & old too. Sometimes they have Birds of Prey displays in the grounds. A hidden gem :)

Interesting little church which has a great historical story. Worth a visit while checking out other more impressive sights, such as the Minster.

Just back from the main shopping areas no longer used as a place of worship but volunteers are there to tell you about the history. It has old style family pews worth a short visit for it's history.

A lovely little oasis of calm just off a busy shopping street. Well worth a detour. Unusual interior and information panels to explain.
