Small but interesting ancient place of worship we came across walking by the river. Uneven floor and narrow entrance may prove difficult for some but still worth seeking out if historic buildings are your thing.

Came across this little church tucked away as we walked around. The original building is very old, but the restoration work that has been done is excellent. You can see some beautiful stonework if you walk inside and look up to your right.

Beautiful little building with a fascinating history. Tiny but well worth a visit. Don't miss pictures in back 'vestry'.

This was definitely worth seeing. Very ancient building with nooks and crannies and a must see when in the town. A lovely Norman church next door too.

Simple but ancient, this is not a church for those seeking great medieval monuments. Instead it is a modest building that has stood for centuries and illustrates the early worship practices of the local faithful. It's a bit hard to find but there is some...More
