As people push open the door of the church and step inside there is usually a murmur, or an ‘Aah’. After the dark exterior even the dim light inside cannot hide the extravagant colours, exuberant altar pieces, and extraordinary ceilings.
The Glory Beam dates from the 16C and is intricately carved.
But it is the 16C carving of the Descent from the Cross and Chavagny’s Entombment (1676) which I believe are the unique sights in this church.
This is one of my favourite churches, and a place for lingering in the quietness.
