The church is lovely, makes an ideal location for weddings and attending church services. I have photographed this many times, the grounds are beautiful. Well worth a visit if you are in the village area. Able to park next to the church.

Lovely little village church and cemetery. The graveyard and church are both very well looked after and very peaceful. A great way to step away from the hustle and bustle of modern life a get a quick recharge.

The Church is usually open, which is rare these days. Look out for the painted beams - reputedly made from a captured Spanish Armada Ship! They certainly seem to be dated as Elizabethan. Also on the otside of the church, look carefully to the left...More

A serene experience inside with many traditional features associated with a church of this age... Well worth a visit...and what a bonus to find it is open.
