Since we have started having an ‘open door’ period on a Monday afternoon they have proved to be increasingly popular, with people coming from far & wide just to see our beautiful Church. If you haven’t yet come along or would like to visit again the Church will be open between 4 & 5pm most Monday afternoons from the 20th April to 18th May – the only exception being the Bank Holiday 4/5/15.

Not only is it fascinating from a historical perspective (it being of course now over 900 yrs old) but it is also a wonderful place to come & sit to enjoy some peace & quiet in our increasingly noisy & busy livesNick Rees
