The highlight of this Church is the woodwork. There are two main pieces, the Pulpit and the Altarpiece, both of which are extraordinary pieces of carving. The Altarpiece is ambitious in both size and ambition, and the Pulpit contains a lot of detail. Elsewhere, there...More

The church was extremely quiet and peaceful. It was a shelter from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Inside I felt safe and calm, both spiritually and physically. With the peace and quiet came a moment of clear reflection on my travels in...More
