Very typical of the southern churches. The gargoyles appear on the roofs as they should. It is a place of worship. When We looked round a member of the church took us round. Staff friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable volunteers.

We had a great time visiting the church. Liked the old features and how "welcoming" it felt. Make sure you donate some money when visiting too. We picked 5 candles and prayed for our grandparents that passed away years ago.
