Popped in here one sunny Sunday. Helpful volunteers, useful loo, lovely church to look at, choir was rehearsing for Evensong which was nice. Didn't take hours, but worth a look. Prices in gift shop are reasonable, got a few bargains.

I loved my visit to this stunning church. The man on the door was very helpful with all my questions. The history here is amazing. Look out for the grave stone from 1620!
