The Parish Church of St. Andrew

The little church  of St. Andrew is Early English with perpendicular windows. Note Norman font with Jacobean cover, 17th century heraldic glass, 18th century altar-rails and a 17th century altar-table. The Creed and the Lord's Prayer are two remarkable examples of 'petit-point' needlework.
