Wandered around the graveyard and enjoyed reading the headstones of the famous people buried there. Inside, the only part that really stood out was the mural on one section of the walls, other than that, it was just another church.
A really nice, well built Victorian church, which has an area on the right hand side as you go in called “PARRY,S” as a small coffee shop. They seem to think that there is a lot of restoration work to be done, but I was...More

Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley are buried together within a few yards of the church, up a path at the hill at the back. An impressively solid monument. The church inside and out is impressive too. Plenty of community events, music, teas and coffees...More

The chapel in the churchyard is the Resurrection Chapel. It was originally built as a mortuary chapel for the main church (before public mortuaries existed) but has been used for various things in the last few decades, most recently by the small Celtic Orthodox community for their services. It has always been part of the parish church, and we are currently renovating it for various uses as a chapel and community space. (The Unitarian Church is on West Cliff, a mile or so away.)
