This is a place of history and the staff were welcoming and happy to answer the numerous questions we had. St Mary's is a very old church with such a great and interesting story. Well worth a visit.

Lovely little old church that you can visit either before or after the abbey. You can light a candle for loved ones inside for a small donation.
