What a beautiful place to visit and such a great story. Very friendly and helpful staff, encourage you to enjoy your visit. Don't miss "the beam", it is lit up but not clearly indicated. Free to enter, but they do ask for donations.

This is a wonderful church, fantastic stonework and an interesting interior. The guides are very helpful and supply you with a leaflet which explains the history of the building.
