Popped in to Belvedere again to see if there was any fire damage. Fortunately there had been no serious threat. Very happy to see that the Church was unscathed. Do yourself a favour and take their walk. A lovely experience.

Beautiful hidden gem, untouched by time and the environment situated in a quaint little pretty village. Worth a visit. Sadly didn't get to view inside as a church service was taking place (it was a Sunday).

Beautiful, historic church and graveyard are worth a visit when starting your travels to this area. The church itself is the size of a small chapel and rich in history. A beautiful place to to stop for a moment and count your blessings!

A really interesting history here at this little church. The building is of small traditional gothic architectural nature with stained glass windows and incredible workmanship. The garden was charming with informative plaques dotted all over for visitors to read.
