A very quaint little church surrounded by woodland. looks even more enchanting in the snow. They hold a coffee morning on the first saturday of every month and the bacon sandwiches are amazing.

Loved visiting today in the sunshine. The church building itself is wonderful from the outside and spent time walking through the graveyard reading the headstones. Such a peaceful place to be.

This makes a nice walk on a winters day. Church is quaint and churchyard is well kept. They do a lovely midnight xmas service.

Attended a wedding here yesterday. Not from the area and thought it was a beautiful and quaint church. The vicar was fantastic and the whole area lovely. Only downside is parking !
