We had a wander round after visiting Isel hall. Pretty little church in lovely peaceful surroundings. The area around the church is beautiful and well worth having a stroll up the river

Stunning location next to the river Derwent. Beautiful and peaceful inside for pray and contemplation, friendly church, also makes an excellent venue for a country wedding.

Small Norman church in lovely situation above River Derwent. Large car park. Closed for dehumidification after flooding November 2015 when I visited in March but normally open daily during British Summer Tiime, weekends in winter. Look out for the sundial *inside* the porch.

Badly damaged by the flood but now back to its best. Fabulous location by the derwent, near to isel hall and bridge with parking spots and lovely river walk. Plenty of parking at the church and benches in the graveyard - well established yews.
