Lovely village church which is the hub of the village and reflects the story of the terrible events which took place hundreds of years ago. A must see location.

Visited during a fete. Beautiful decorations by locals unfortunately the flowers were dead cos of the heat. Good fun to search the grave yard for plague victims.

Lovely church to walk around, has a Saxon font and beautiful stained glass windows. The graveyard has a lot of headstones from the plague.

What an interesting story this village has to tell! The church was very informative in telling the story of the village during the plague and as a visitor I felt really connected to the people who lived and died throughout this period of history.

The displays about the villages history really capture the detail. The maps available for a small contribution take you on a lovely walk around the village where you really get a sense of the courage and sacrifice the village made. Well worth a trip.
