Quite a large church for the size of town. Nice architecture and the chapel with the family tombs is amazing in terms of ages and quality of the carvings.

A brass plaque in the chapel on the south side of the church commemorates its dedication on 24 April 1241 , loved the fact that this church has not had the modern touch . There is much stained glass in the church

The scale of this church is unexpected in a small market town, but it is beautiful and very well maintained - not as a show piece but a place of worship. Worth adding to your itinerary.
