We visited this church during an organ practice which made it very special. The stained glass windows were beautiful and it still has less rather than chairs.

If you are near St. Chads church you must have a look around, if you can. Inside is amazing, a very unusual round shape for a church. And then take a look around the graveyard and see the grave of Ebenezer Scrooge!!! There was no fee to enter, but a requested donation or you do take photographs or film, but... More

I love this church! So much so I try to make a special effort to see it once or twice a month! It's setting and architecture is truly one off! The round building and lofty ceilings make you stop and stare! I wish I came here every week. Sunday and Wednesday services alike are fabulous and the concerts well you... More

Really enjoyed looking around this church and spending a few precious moments in silent meditation in a wonderful space. There was a volunteer there when we visited who was only too pleased to talk to you about the Church.

One is the old ruins of an originally Norman church and then the newer one circa 1792 in a rare circular shape which makes for a very interesting interior. It is reputed to be the third or fourth largest round church in England. For fan's of the early 1980's version of A... More

A beautiful and very unusual church in the round. I hadn't seen one before. As you would expect, very peaceful inside, away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The graveyard holds a very special grave too! Ebenezer Scrooge!
