“A place of peace....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

On entering, I was struck by the wonderful Norman arcades (my favourite period of architecture) leading on to the 13th century east end.
The stone on the arcades is warm in tone and very attractive. In the chancel there are two twentieth-century stained glass windows of a deep and vibrant richness - purples, ivy greens and deep sea blues. They positively glowed in the late morning sunshine. The church is large and cathedral-like in proportion and the purity and simplicity of both architectural periods made a powerful impression.
