The current church was built starting in the 9th century, and there are still outstanding...More

Yes it is fairly wheelchair friendly except the crypt which has stairs. The street level pavement near the entrance has a step, what I can't remember is if the gradient reduces to nil at street level. Also there is a small rounded sill at the side entrance doorway.
