St. Thomas has a beautiful interior with part of the building dating from around 1180. It has a fine 12th-century Norman chancel arch, and exquisite West door. Well worth a visit

Although this lovely church is placed on the very edge of a busy market town, it is a haven of peacefulness. Open to the public it is a great place to spend a few moments of quiet contemplation. Someone once told me that 'stones absorb...More
