This is a lovely old church set in a beautiful and peaceful but large woodland graveyard yet only a stone's throw from the very large Tescos. I love coming here on a summer's afternoon to wind down and relax. I have only seen the graveyard - the Church is not always open.

visited this church for family tree research, this is set in a lovely, peaceful setting, very popular to visit, not always open to public but we were lucky to meet the church warden who helped us with our research.

A beautiful church set in surrounding woodland. Lovely for a Sunday afternoon walk. We used to go to this church and two of our children were christened here

Spent many an evening here as a kid, but again not as an adult, so the wife and I parked up in the little car park and took a short walk in to the churches grounds and around. It was late evening in December and so was already dark and actually quite spooky which was quite fun. We hear they... More

A quaint little church tucked in the woods. Now it is a bit difficult to find now there are new roads around it

We didn't know this church was here, we just found the woods and went for a walk, imagine our delight in finding this little spot with a lovely church and even lovelier churchyard, very pretty, lots of people strolling around and dog walkers.
