This is worth popping in to see. A Saxon church, that has a working clock, in a transparent case. Why I do not know. First time we had seen this.

This very small small little church is amazing and well worth taking the time to see. We approached it via a pretty walk from the River Avon, by some very interesting old houses and history.

Well worth while finding and exploring. Although small, totally evokes the atmosphere of an earlier age and time and far more complete than we expected.
