The church is undergoing renovation and repairs, so the exterior is not looking its best, but the interior is architecturally interesting. There are plenty of brochures explaining its history and customs, and there are postcards and books for sale.

Shame about the necessary repairs but the church is very nice and outside gardens are quite beautiful with great views of the surging river after all the recent rain the previous day.
