A fascinating experience and a real sense of history, it can be quite eerie but always very interesting.

Holy Trinity Church itself is a miracle of survival, having once been derelict, but the bone crypt under it is one of only three in England and you are up close with the bones. Hours are a bit tricky- one web site says every second...More

It's a bit smelly down in the crypt. You will never see another place like this so well worth a visit. The church that houses this crypt is absolutely beautiful.
