This Delightful Structure rests in this small village nestled in the village. Built in the mid 16th century is worth a visit to take you to a time gone by. The Church only holds about 250.

The old church is built of timber, and has no lighting or heating. A new church with improved facilities is close by. The old church is well worth an internal visit.

It is entirely dependent upon the weather. Good walking shoes or boots, warm jacket and trousers should suffice.
