This Village is worth a modest diversion. Largely unspoilt and a place to meander just for a while. The Church tower and its structure was of interest.

Looked around this old church and discovered that boxes of 'bits and bobs' were left all over the place. This detracted from the whole experience.

This is an incredible church, full of original features. The architecture is amongst the finest as it was made by some very rich people. This is a must see church, but don't rush and take a look around the town too as it's beauty should be admired also.

Lots to see in this fine church. We visited just after Christmas when the church was still decorated with amazing jack-in-the-boxes, and models of wise men and mangers. This did distract a bit from some of the finer features of the architecture and the furnishings, but we will return again to see those in more detail. Good stained glass and... More

As visitors to the area we found the cathedral to be warm and welcoming and particularly thought your "rememberence display"" was very good, well done.

We spent an hour here last week, walking around the town, and spent time looking around the church. Currently there is a memorial to those from the town, who were killed in action in WW1 at the Battle of The Somme. Definately spend time here, local history information as well.
