Love this church. So wonderfully crafted. The best place to take photo of entire church is from the garden & it's pretty flowers.

Double-aisled without transepts. A long laborious history leads us to a loaded architectural body with simplicity of form and gravitas. Dimensionally it is not 'acrobatic' i.e. the dimensions: height of nave etc ire not nominally impressive but the area covered by the edifice, its raw...More
