Facilities and features
Ladies, Gents and Disabled
We have ample space for parking in front of the church wall. The car park is big enough to accommodate a coach.
A couple of parking spaces are available at the end of the church path on the grass area beyond the path. It is advisable to slowly reverse down the path so that your passenger side has more space.
A beautiful Grade 1 listed church with monuments and windows from the 14th century.
Many monuments to the Poyntz family including Sir Gabriel Poyntz.
In the churchyard is St Cedd’s Well, used for early Christian baptisms.
