Amazing arts and crafts church - incredible interior despite very plain austere exterior. Lots of great carvings and metalwork and beautiful wood doors inlaid with abelone. Well worth a visit.

This is a really interesting church. There is the beautiful copper altar and wooden carvings. Even the supports for the gutters were attractive. It was the most interesting arts and crafts church that I have seen.
