Small, ancient church near the Lace Market. In reasonable shape on the inside and with stained glass and chapels. There is some restoration work in progress but the outside is generally in poor condition

I have visited the church on a occasions that are happy and also sad. The one constant thing is the church itself, an oasis of calm, in the buzzing centre of the City.

Such a lovely place very close to the city centre. Don't confuse it for the nearby structure the 'Picture and Piano' that is a pub restaurant. The church is a real original and well worth a short trip from town.
