A lovely church which is obviously not just a historic building but also a much loved present day place of worship. Pretty altar frontal and lectern drapes reflecting the sea. Awesome crypt-like chapel.

This church also seems like a tardis to me, quite big on the outside but huge for a village church on the inside. Always well maintained, it is a very calming experience, very bright & airy for a church over a thousand years old.
