I live in the area and love the Charm and beauty of this church. It is stunning. The grounds are beautiful and I know they have started to open the church up. So if you are passing through, pop in!

Go inside and you will be rewarded by the richly decorated interior. Wall and ceiling paintings are stunning and the light filters through the glorious stained glass windows
