  • I went to see the Armastice Ghost soldiers made by a local artist to commemorate the 11 soldiers who are buried here and who died during the first world war. They are stood in front of the graves of those who lost their lives.
  • A church has been on this site long before the current church was built in the early 13th century. The tower, spire and chancel are later 13th century and the nave windows updated in the 15th. The church exterior is a characteristically grey local stone, with a tall, slim spire. Inside is light and surprisingly airy. The arch braced roof timbers are supported on individually carved angel corbels dating from the 14th century. The hexagonal pulpit is jacobean, the lead font is from 1664 and the pews are 19th century. All add to a distinct and individual atmosphere in the church. A stunning mix of old and new.
