|Of especial interest is our unique Double Helix Spiral
difficult to describe, but allows two separate staircases wound around one central spine.

English Heritage has been a major partner in restoring the church tower and

|Heritage Open Days celebrates England's fantastic
architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that
are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission.
Every year on four days in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, ranging from castles to factories, town halls to tithe barns, parish churches to Buddhist temples. It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities which bring to life local history and culture.
Free of charge and literally on people's doorstep,
Coordinated nationally by the Civic Trust in partnership with English Heritage , the event thrives on the enthusiasm and expertise of local people. Thousands of volunteers from all walks of life share their knowledge and memories with some 800,000 visitors every year, making Heritage Open Days England's largest voluntary cultural event.
