This church is open to the public, no cost. Documentation provided explains the history and changes that have occurred over the years. If you are interested in such history, this is an excellent location to visit.

We think this is one of only 3 or 4 churches built during Cromwells time, ie during the Commonwealth. Very simple Church, but beautiful. Well Kept, lots of interest.
