Virtual Audio Tour

Tudor stained glass in the West window

AUDIO TOUR (full)

Stand somewhere inside the entrance of the church, then press PLAY below – PAUSE OR STOP the tour AT ANY POINT. If you prefer, use the tour section by section in any order (see lower down page). A printed PDF version is also available to download.

FULL AUDIO TOUR

Use the audio tour as you walk around the church – listen on your own phone. Please use headphones, or adjust the volume if other people are in the church. At the end of each section, you will be invited to go to a new location.

The tour takes just over 28 minutes to complete.
