It is a steep 15-20 minute climb from the road. Its currently being restored and the frescoes are preserved with a temporary roof over them. Its a nice spot to visit as the tour buses don't come here.

A mixture of churches of varying ages dating back to the C10th. Wonderful carved porch and ancient frescoes in the interior. The site, up a steep hill, provides a panoramic view of the Debden valley.
