Unfortunately the church is out of the town centre, being some distance along church street and away from the main centre of activity. Access is by a well surfaced path. Car parking not always easy. Display of poppies which was the reason for our visit...More

Found it was open as we walked around the town. Very impressive from an architecture perspective and interesting inside too. Worth a look if you are in the neighbourhood.

A beautiful church. An old building but very in tune with modern day. We went to see an art installation called 'Our Game' about the Shrovetide match. The exhibition was was fantastic but so was the church!!

I came to the church to see the 5000 clay models on display in the chancel. Very unusual and impressive. But this ancient church is well worth visiting in its own right as a structure and also to look at the various tombs.
