Second visit and it was wonderful once more. The guides were excellent, especially the lady who talked thought the wonders of the chained library which is only one of four left in English churches. What a wonder of the UK!! Visit and enjoy!

A beautiful building in the centre of Wimborne. It is a lovely example of a church building with lovely carvings and many years of history within.
