It's all to easy to walk past this architectural wonder, and you'd be missing out. For starters, you'll never have seen so many daddy long legs, for some unknown reason uncommonly attracted to the outer church walls. The inner wooden church has been restored extensively in the 21st century after services ceased in 1998. It's a fascinating repository of history and decoration well explained via leaflets left for visitors. Wonder at the soldier who saw dysentery as a minor inconvenience when "war broke out in Afghanistan" (ie we invaded), and at the orange version of Van Gogh's Starry Starry Night as background decoration, the wooden galleries and the great pulpit. For those who like their decayed graveyards this is also a treat with plenty of skull and crossbone decorated tombs and one for the 19th century dignitary where people have left pennies (not that he needed them in life. He funded much restoration, then hired out the seats in the church gallery behind his family pew). In season there are free blackberries to be had at the back of the graveyard.
