What an amazing place to visit this was! I have never been in a rounded church and it felt so atmospheric it was stunning. I would like to return at Christmas as I bet the acoustics are fabulous.

One of only three round churches in England apparently. Well worth a visit. The church warden was very informative - go and see Ebenezer Scrooge's tomb!!

Interesting church, Arts and Crafts pulpit, great acoustics for the (free) Friday lunchtime concerts. And Ebenezer Scrooge's 'gravestone' in the churchyard.
