  • Sadly, the church was closed when we tried to visit early August 2021 - presumably due to Covid-19 and social distancing requirements, although there were also some barrier railings in one corner...

  • Beautiful Victorian Gothic church. Interior design uses mosaics to great effect, both on the floor and the altar piece. Stunning.
  • Does not have the energy of a medieval church. Inside is lovely and peaceful. There is a prayer candle stand at 20p/candle.
