You must cover yourself if your legs are bare. There is a basket by the door and the priest admonishes you if you are not adequately dressed. Not sure why they look so stringent. You must remove your hat as well. It’s such a shame...More

A small church tucked away in the lanes tolling bells at 9am, this was charming, very old and very impressive. It’s small so you won’t need much time and you can’t take photos. Oh and no shorts or short tops are allowed so you have...More
