Great, although I expect you are referring to the pub and not the church. Ps both are actually in Lincolnshire and not Cambridgeshire. We Are half a mile over the border.

I'm confused by this review, who is Charlie? I'm sorry the outside looked messy ... its usually well kept. I shall go along later and see if I can see what prompted this comment and what we can do to correct it.
