Attracted by the strange structure it is well worth popping in the see this building from inside. 15 mins will probably suffice and no great history but very interesting none the less.

This church built in 1937 by local boat builders is in the form of an upside down hull, it closed in 2005 but was restored and re-opened in 2011, it is unusual in its outside design and exquisite and simple inside. Open on Tuesdays only,...More
