Very beautiful church supposedly with Robin Hood connections. A short walk from the city centre but well worth the effort.

It is quite a pretty church overall, especially from the outside, but there is nothing really special about it.

Impressive church, especially if you take time to study the minor details. Lots of symbols and imagery to behold. I went there to make a video and take photos but I suspect this church is at its best when you just want to sit and contemplate, especially if the sun is shining through those awesome stained glass windows.
