We understand the Church is not just for services but concerts too. It's not surprising as the arches give good acoustics. Lots of statues and gargoyles some in wood. Very clean and looked after. I could find a date of construction . The church is...More

This is a very pretty and cosy church .It has a great wood carved panel in the front and good children’s play area towards the side. Good concept to keep young kids occupied while adults can have a good look around.
