This little gem of a church is located on the canal side, near bridge 220, behind the manor house if you come by road.  It is open every day from 10am to 4pm.  Rebuilt in 1831, a church has stood on this site since at least the 12th century.  

The congregation attempts to be friendly and welcoming.  We offer Fair Trade coffee and tea and soft refreshments after the services.  YOU will be welcome to worship with us.
