Impressive architecture and stained glass windows. Helpful attendant and entry is free. If you've got a head for heights then the tower is a must for the views

Lots of steps up a spiral staircase, waiting for people coming up or going down,puffing and panting on a hot day... But all worth it for the views. Great vista all round and its free! ( Donations )

Lovely inside and out. Magnificent organ case. The inside was rather dark with plain stone walls, we enjoyed an organ concert here.
