‪Avoid the nasty volunteer called Simon who readies the church on Saturday afternoons‬

‪My solo visit to this beautiful country church 3.15 pm Saturday 18th May should have been a peaceful and a pleasant experience. Alas it was not, there I was a single elderly person who came in as one does to look around for a brief quiet respectful visit, to marvel at the stained glass and architecture and make a small donation , pick up a guide leaflet to read the history . My son and daughter in law who live relatively locally held my dog outside. Nothing out of the ordinary that could upset an unassuming communicant Anglican lady from Wales? No? You'd be wrong. I met the local volunteer jobsworth! I had quietly entered when this rough man complete with tool box and extension cables arrived. He boomed out rudely and gruffly to me ' Church is closing'. Well he wasn't locking up, he was doing jobs and I was not in his way. I said I'd come a long way and I just wanted to look around please. His hackles were up 'Ive got jobs to do, Ive got to get ready for tomorrow' Well, I was not pleased with the tone or the attitude. My retort was ' So Gods house is only open on Sunday, he only works on Sunday does he and people are not welcome into His house on Saturday afternoon, you are telling me I am not welcome in His empty house at 3.30pm on a Saturday afternoon because you say so, although you are in it.' I ask this person who he was, he wouldn't tell me. There was no rhyme nor reason for this rude unwelcoming display to visitors, particularly when so many country churches are losing their flock Apparently, my enquiries revealed that its not the first time people have encountered rudeness from this volunteer. Im told his name is Simon. So I have sad memories that could have spoilt my afternoon, but redeemed by a wonderful visit to the very welcoming hostelry and the Post Office.‬

‪The location of this church is picture perfect, and the actual structure of the church is very nice indeed.

I was very pleased that, unlike so many other churches at the moment, this one is open to the public. The downside is the perceived need to tape off most of the interior, restricting visitors to the central aisle. As such, we were unable to fully explore this interesting looking interior.

The ceiling however was in full, glorious view and is rather special.‬

‪Standing in a prominent corner churchyard the church is built of local stone as is the fine font.
Many old gravestones are still surprisingly legible, a tribute to the stone.‬

‪This was my second visit to the interior of this Church. Beautiful stonework...see my images including the striations on the sandstone columns.
On a previous visit, it was a special Open Day...including the darkness of the Crypt. Luckily on that occasion several of our walking group members had head torches in their pacs. All the better to see the lead-sheathed coffins in the vault! A real feeling of the local history surrounding thus whole place.‬
