We were walking around Hull and came across this. The church has an arch over the footpath, which makes an impressive sight. Great architecture. Worth a look just for this.

We got caught out in the rain near St Mary the Virgin and decided to take shelter in the church. After visiting the Holy Trinity this church was a lot smaller but very interesting. The floors were uneven so if you have difficulty walking take...More
