We received a wonderful welcome when we attended morning worship. The church is beautiful with a long history. I even enjoyed walking around the graveyard attached. The chiming of the clock and the bells was an added bonus.

This is a lovely little church set aside from the main square. When you walk around you get to see the long history of the village and it’s people. Well worth a visit if you are in the area

I only went to pick up a friend, but what a special building this is. Well worth visiting. Much larger than I thought it would be and old, with much of interest. If you are in the area I would definitely recommend you visit.
