Whilst not big this church is a good place to visit. Many plaques adorn the walls and we found it interesting to find those local to our home towns. The embroidered kneeling pads are interesting in their own right. The display of handmade poppies looked...More

Not very grand as far as churches go but looked spectacular with all the knitted poppies outside up the walls. Inside the kneelers were very interesting with different counties and forces all represented.

The plaques, cushions and memorials here in this little church were amazing. You can join by paing just £5 a year which we will certainly do as we feel it is so important to keep the people of the great war who made such sacrifices...More

it's slightly out of the main town but very well worth finding out where it is - only a few minutes from the Cloth Hall. has many close associations with the UK through military connections. definately on the must visit list

This is a beautiful little church almost in the shadow of the cathedral. It is remarkable and moving to see all the plaques, banners and wreaths commemorating the dead laid by regiments, schools and associations. Not to be missed.
