Brief description of church:       A church almost completely rebuilt in 1873 with a wonderful spire added just a few years later (from the bottom of the tower to the top of the spire (including weathercock!) is 44 yards).  The church has a simple interior, but is wonderfully well looked-after.

Main points of interest about the church:       One is the tablet on the wall dated 1842, which remembers three men who died trying to rescue a ten year-old boy who had gone down an old mine-shaft
