“Wonderful very historic church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Excellent audio visual aids. Very peaceful. Magnificent stained glass some of which was 1470. Most unusual family tombs inside the church and lovely chancel arch.

“Saxon Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This ancient church dates in part back to Saxon times, and it is truly beautiful. The tower is very unusual in that it has wooden shingles instead of tiles. Inside is exactly as it should be, very simple but quite breathtaking. Not to be missed!
