A large but quaint church with beautiful stained glass windows. Also, when I visited there were many informative displays about WW1. It also has an unusual and very impressive spire crowning the top of the church.

This is a very large and historic parish church with lots to see inside. When I visited there was a lot of interesting material about World War One. Others have commented on the unusual spire.
