    Keep going around the church.

    The first church was built on this site in 1110 but the design of the tower and transepts you are now seeing date from the 11th and 12th centuries. There has been renovation work since this time however.

    The interior of the church is worth taking a look at - retaining its 18th century 'box pews' which are some way above the ground. There is also an impressive three-decker pulpit.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
