The church is maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust. It had many interesting aspects-architectural, historical and social.

“Nice deconsecrated church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

A quiet space: a shame that the south nave garden wasn't open in winter for us to look around. We felt that there could have been more made of the church's history and architecture

“Historic decomissioned church open to visitors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This redundant church has been retained as a historic monument and is open to visitors, thanks to its volunteers. I'd never entered this church before and was immediately struck by the lofty, empty space created by the removal of the church pews which made it easy to appreciate the architecture. There were several other visitors having a look round too so it was good to see such interest in this historic building. Items of note include the magnificent beamed roof and an old horse-drawn fire engine.
