Overwhelming ancient building. An amazing monument to our historic past. I found the more modern stained glass windows representing the war years very interesting too. Donations requested. Easily accessible.

A fantastic imposing building, some of it built over 800 years ago. Still very much functioning as a working church so if you time your visit right you can take in a service

Being a regular churchgoer, I have a great affinity with places of worship. Whenever I am away from home I try to visit local churches. Over the last few years I have built up a considerable collection of photographs. On a recent visit to Bristol,...More
