A wonderful sense of a truly ancient church, you are welcomed by the attendants with interest. Check out the strange walnut trees in the precinct that are not really walnuts.

Greyfriars holds some of the best services in the area; there are both modern and contemporary services which should suit all tastes. Could not recommend this church more highly.

This church dates back over 700 years and is another of those that have been forced to change their use to that of a youth and conference centre to make better use of the real estate. There is a coffee shop in the church grounds.
