Was previously a church founded by St Columba in AD 535? Lovely interior and old graveyard. It is very small and still used to this day. There are staff there to explain the history.

When you walk the wall on top you will see this pretty little church with its mature trees, lovely plantings and old grave stones. The pathway has gorgeous inlaid pieces. The staff were very friendly and we had a lovely chat.

Walking the wall of Derry is rewarding in many ways, great views out across the city, and fabulous buildings around the walls to marvel. St Augusties and its ground were a nice find

This may not be a large church or a highly decorated church but it feels a warm and welcoming size. Unlike St Columb's Cathedral there is no suggestion as to what visitors might donate but while I followed the Cathedrals guide I doubled that here,...More
