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.

Church Path Update - 25 February 2016

Inspection and consultations with many interested parties have taken place regarding Church Path over the past three weeks.  Today it has been mostly cordoned off.  We have been advised that the culvert is in imminent danger of collapsing and should be repaired throughout its entire length.

The car park  and church can still be accessed by car and on foot but you do so at your own risk as the culvert has to be crossed at some point.

Pat Hawkins of the Five Bells, very kindly, is allowing any church visitors to park at the Five Bells.

This is now the recommended route  to the churchyard. 

Drawings are currently being prepared for the project but because of the specialist work needed, the task is unlikely to take place before May.

I am sorry for any inconvenience this causes but I can assure you that we are expediting matters as soon as possible. - H. Joyce, Church Warden
