This is a very old church which has been added to and renovated over the years such that only few remnants of its earliest incarnation are visible. It is a very large church for a small(ish) town and its size is emphasised in the interior...More

This is a 'working church' with regular services, and quite lovely if not spectacular. Certainly a pleasant place for meditation or prayer, and the Flemish tapestry, while not well lit, is worth the stop.

Church was open for visitors grave of Mary Morgan in grave yard. Such an interesting and sad story yet town seems to ignore it..church rather plain but open which was nice. Lack of information about some things inside church nut pleasure to visit open church

Lovely churchyard full of flowers and tranquil indoors. Fleming Tapestry was very interesting. Great to see a church being used so well by the community for music and more.
