History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The church of All Saints is a mainly 12th-century building with a Norman font and traces of medieval wall paintings. Behind the west tower of the church is a stone statue, about 3 feet high, of a peculiar creature.
The most plausible explanation is that the carving represents some sort of Celtic Earth Mother figure. Within the church are several medieval wall paintings and medieval brasses in the south aisle.
