This 12th century church is more impressive than the modern cathedral and was free on a Sunday morning. Yes it has an impressive Last Judgement painting, but i liked the stained glass better.

Hope I've got the right church? But the Doom painting was fascinating and worth a quick look. A big contrast to the Cathedral.

With the Cathedral destroyed by German bombers, Holy Trinity just down the road was lucky to survive. It's a wonderful example of a medieval church, with wonderful carvings, great stained glass and a superb atmosphere.

This is beautifully preserved 12th century church that gives you a feel of what the medieval cathedral would have been like. The Doom painting is wonderful. Helpful and friendly guides were an unexpected bonus. Perfect for an hour in a restful setting.
