The yew trees in the churchyard (99 of them) are amazing, and the bells in the tower (14 of them) fascinating to learn about too. A lovely warm and airy church.

Went to view the numerous Yew Trees (nearly 100), all beautifully trimmed, but the church and Lych Gate are well worth seeing. There is a car park nearby costing 20p for an hour -can't get cheaper than that!

A beautiful church with an unusual clock face. The 99 Yew trees are famous as Satan apparently stopped the 100 tree being grown. Great place for photos
