After travelling many miles to visit this church, it is not till you arrive that you discover it to be close. Why no mention of this on the website, social media pages or on this site? That is a terrible lack of customer care and...More

This is something a bit different. This is no longer a place of worship and is instead a museum of sorts, showing what has been discovered about the people who were buried here, well worth a visit.

This is a church steeped in history, where I find the local history interesting, as the church dates back centuries. It's intriguing to think how central a role both this church and St Marys played in forging the town's identity.

The exhibition covers the church's history and its people over the last 1,000 years, until it closed in 1972. There are also plaques to record the fallen of the Great war and the Bell Ringers of the Church. An English Heritage property only open on...More

This English heritage church houses an exhibition called Buried Lives regarding the skeletons found on site. Very informative and well done. Part of the Church dates from Anglo Saxon times

This church is cared for by English Heritage so has restricted opening hours and there is an entry fee payable. However, it is a wonderful old church with many parts of it dating back to Saxon times. The tower is especially interesting and we spent...More
