Lovely place to visit. I was lucky enough for the Rector to give me a guided tour,even though the church was closed. Has a main entrance at the end of the Nave,not at the side and contains some beautiful Norman arches,all covered in chevrons.

Amazing architecture, so historical. We came across this church while looking for a particular restaurant. We had the great pleasure of listening to the bell ringers practice, it was so lovely to hear. Id defiantly recommend a visit.
