There are not a lot of sites in Alderney to visit. This Scott designed church gets more attention than it would elsewhere due to this it is ,not ,I would say one, of his finest efforts .

Like so many churches in the Channel Islands, this elegant church surrounded by a graveyard it strikingly beautiful. This particular church is larger with an even more austere atmosphere. It makes for a lovely stop while shopping along Victoria Street.

Enjoyed viewing this interesting large church, 'The Cathedral of the Channel lslands' listening to the bells and strolling in the beautifully kept churchyard, full of primroses, bluebells and blue irises.

wonderful to walk along the aisle and to see the works of art both old and new- the sculpture of Christs's face is eerily lifelike and struck me most solemny. Headstones in the grounds are also intreresting- some lovely angels and cherubs, picturesque surroundings

Set off Victoria Street and close to the States of Alderney building/s this historic church is a place of tranquility. Inside the church is cool and refreshing , peaceful and quiet with beautifully proportioned cathedral ceilings.

I do appreciate it when I visit a village and find the church open. It restores my faith in human nature. This is a massive church for such a small island and deserves the accolade of Cathedral of the Channel Island.
