Stumbled across this church as we did a walking tour of the city centre of Hull. It is centrally located and a real pretty example of a church and worth taking time to view and enjoy. Very nice example.

This church is incredible. It is one of the most under estimated jewels in the City and desperately needs the visitors to save it by visiting and donating. The Church that William Wilberforce attended.
