Accessibility

There are two toilets in the tower ground floor, one of which is fitted for use by the disabled.

Baby changing facilities are available in the toilet for the disabled

There is a small car park at the east end of the church for six cars. There is a car park at the Village Hall in Baronshurst Drive nearby and a larger car park at the other side of the recreation field which is accessed from the High Street opposite the Red Lion pub. From there it is a five minute walk to the church across the recreation field. We advise that coaches must not attempt to drive down the narrow lane to the church as there is a ditch to one side into which a coach may easily fall.

One of the two toilets is fitted for use by the disabled with wide doors, handlebars, etc

The entrance through the south door is level. There are two steps on the inside of the north door. A portable ramp is available next to the north door which can also be used for access up the chancel step into the chancel.
