It is a shame that it is impossible to do justice to the stained glass windows with a photograph. The colours are amazing.

Beautiful gothic church. The lack of columns in the nave makes it much more light and airy than you expect. Well worth a visit. Glorious 19C stained glass.

This is such a beautiful and tranquil building to visit. The stained glass windows must be among the most beautiful in the world and the organ is also most impressive!

Typical of the churches and cathedrals in this area. Took hundreds of years to build at what must have been tremendous expense for the day. Beautiful.

Wonderful experience of peaceful mess as the bright sunlight filters in through the stained glass windows. This is well worth a quite contemplative wander.
