Visited for Morning service on Trinity Sunday The Book of Common Prayer was used.- lovely to read those meaningful words as they were written. Very friendly parishioners and Vicar. I understand they organise parties with a guide.. hopefully next time.

This is a lovely village to walk around and very accessable. This arch is great piece of history right in the middle of the village, just off the square.

Lovely old Priory with an interesting history. There are guided tours which I think would be worthwhile although we did not go on one so I cannot comment on the content. Very old graves tho most of the graveyard is fenced off
