Having walked around the Ramparts it was a pleasant experience to enter the peace and tranquility inside the church. The sight of the mighty Bell was another reward as was the modern organ loft and pipes.

Another moving visit to a church, which somehow mostly survived the ravages of the D-Day bombing. The outside pulpit was something we hadn't ever seen before.
