Took a wintery walk up here before Christmas. The cemetary is one of the most peaceful places I know - I just wish dog owners would be more responsible up there. Sunny cold stroll through the graveyard and woods is certainly enough to perk me...More

Loved visiting today in the sunshine. The church building itself is wonderful from the outside and spent time walking through the graveyard reading the headstones. Such a peaceful place to be.

Attended a wedding here yesterday. Not from the area and thought it was a beautiful and quaint church. The vicar was fantastic and the whole area lovely. Only downside is parking !

This is a lovely old church set in a beautiful and peaceful but large woodland graveyard yet only a stone's throw from the very large Tescos. I love coming here on a summer's afternoon to wind down and relax. I have only seen the graveyard...More

visited this church for family tree research, this is set in a lovely, peaceful setting, very popular to visit, not always open to public but we were lucky to meet the church warden who helped us with our research.
