This is a lovely church dating back 800 years and has a number of interesting features which are clearly outlined on the board in the entrance porch. The Pre-Raphaelite glass windows are very noteworthy. The graveyard is very overgrown.

A tiny but beautiful and historic church. With access to the churchyeard where you have a view of the castle, it is believed this is where those residing at the castle worshiped. Peaceful and decorative inner space.

We found this historic church to be full of interesting sights. It is a "high" church which adds to its charm.

This church has a round bell tower. Not sure if 'bell tower' is even the right word to describe it. It has been rebuilt and added onto several times in the last 5 hundred years. Very few churches in England have round towers, and even...More

A stunning church, but also an oasis of calm off the busy High Street. From the outside, admire the workmanship of the square knapped flint, the wooden shingles on the naturally spiraling spire, the modern sculpture of St Michael wielding a sword and the imposing...More
