We have been enjoying the sunshine and a busier time at our beautiful church, where we have welcomed many new visitors to our services, the historic tours and our events we are promoting.

As always, the Vikings enjoyed a good ‘turn out’ during their most recent visit on the 11th May and we are pleased to see them returning again and again, where visitors can be involved with their demonstrations and also a visit to our popular Chapter House building.
