Our church is over a 1000 years old and we are the only Parish Church in England to have a shrine with the relics of a Saint. She is St Wite and the church has been a centre of pilgrimage for centuries, as she is a healing Saint. All visitors are very welcome. The church is open for you to visit between 10 and 4 every day. If you are planning a visit and would like to come outside of these hours please contact our Church Warden via our website below.
