Visited here on our way back from sterling castle, beautiful chapel and the stained glass windows are some of the best I've seen. Children were welcomed in and enjoyed themselves looking around and climbing the steps. A well looked after and loved church

We decided to attend Sunday service at the Cathedral. Great decision. The folks there invited us to coffee afterwards, and we enjoyed visiting with them. The service itself was wonderful and memorable. Highly recommend going to service here if you have a chance.

Well looked after small cathedral. Loved the wooden animals on the pews and, to anybody interested in stained glass, the windows are a feast to the eyes. Very informative simple guides to the windows content.
