Only a chancel remaining

A secluded chancel is all that left of this church after the rest was demolished in 1885.

It sits in a lovely churchyard and has Medieval tiles, traces of 18th century wall paintings and many memorials.

A lancet window dates from its foundation around 1190.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Disabled access

Good access for visitors with disabilities.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
