This gem was said to be the chapel of William the Conqueror and was built in 1069. It was destroyed in 1141 and then rebuilt and restored to its present state. Well worth finding.

A great little church hidden away but close near the square and town. Our friend guided us to it - we would never have come across it without him, but it was a real treat, completed secreted away amongst other buildings.

You will likely pass this hidden little church on your way to the cathedral. It is well worth taking some time out to look around it - it is a little beauty. And it's absolutely free to do so in contrast to its bigger relation.

A fantastic small church tucked just of the High Street. Open to the public free. Interesting inside the contrast of the modern furniture against the old structure.

A wonderful oasis of peace - quite the opposite end of the scale to the truly magnificent Cathedral. A place for contemplation and prayer.

I was so pleased that we happened on this charming little church. It would be so easy to pass by without noticing it and once inside the quiet and peace is immediately striking and soothing

We came across St Lawrence's by chance on the way back to our hotel. It's easy to miss it, but it's worth a visit. There is lovely engraved glass meeting you as you enter and leave, while inside it is an intimate and peaceful place...More
