Passed here after been in Malvern and thought I would just have a quick look inside. Wow! A beautiful place. It felt as though time stopped. It was so peaceful and someone was playing the organ on a lovely Sunday afternoon. Definitely a place to stop and reflect.

I can't believe we have missed seeing this Priory until last week. It is remarkable. It was purchased by the town twenty years after the lead was sold during the dissolution and it is in good shape. It is old, building work started in 1985. Ch. Darwin's daughter is buried here.

I visited again today to look again at this beautiful church and admire the stained glass windows in particular the many medieval ones they are stunningly beautiful. There is a large quantity of medieval tiles too.

Well worth a visit, parts of the priory date back to 1086. Nice park and pond just below the priory, the ponds were originally used to rear fish for the table. No charge though a donation is always welcome.

A beautiful building with lots to look at, particularly the modern stained glass towards the rear. A warm, welcoming feel and easily accessible from the main road.

Very interesting architecture, amazing stained glass windows and tiles. It has a fascinating history going back to 1085! You can scan the QR code in the entrance for a guide and more info. I would like to return in the summer to visit the churchyard & gardens.

What a stunning church. Absolutely fabulous stain glass windows throughout of great age. Pet friendly to well behaved dogs. Some sort of bell ringing practice took place early evening and bells sounded great. Lots of activity undertaken by church according to information zones displayed around the building. Lots of history. Building architecture from both inside and outside is worth viewing.... More
