Help for Visitors

There is a small leaflet about the history of the church to take away but there are three large information boards,
one setting out the how the church and its position fits in a timeline dating back to pre Roman times;
another shows how the church sits in its landscape and the third one shows the church and social history of the parish.
These provide a very comprehensive summary of the parish as a whole.
In addition, a book called 'Sweet Winston' by Brian Clarke is available to purchase, giving an excellent account
of the social history of the parish

The church is open to visitors daily from May to September each year from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
(or later in mid summer). The church is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the winter months.
At any reasonable time, access can be arranged by contacting the church in advance.
There is a notice at the gate explaining where to go to get access, for casual visitors


Other Features

"For many of us, Christmas brings so many emotions, memories and expectations.
We have one nativity story, but it can seem like we all have very different Christmases.
For you it might be a time of joy and togetherness. Or perhaps it's all about planning and to-do lists.
Many others can find it a sad and lonely time - nagged by the feeling that your Christmas is not like
those 'perfect' ones we see in the media. But just like the unexpected assortment of people
who were invited to meet the baby Jesus. # FollowTheStar doesn't ask you to be perfect.
It says: come just as you are to take the life changing Christmas journey'
Archbishops Justin Welby and John Sentamu.
