Whilst small, this church is obviously well used and loved. The gardens are tranquil and well tended. Do pick up the leaflet inside and do the prayer walk - very calming and poignant.

Popped in to Belvedere again to see if there was any fire damage. Fortunately there had been no serious threat. Very happy to see that the Church was unscathed. Do yourself a favour and take their walk. A lovely experience.
