Unfortunately the Earl of Chesterfield public house has closed and the status of the property is uncertain. The car park was blocked off but the blocks have now been removed. It is probably safe to park there for the time being - however you do so at your own risk. If you wish to park  elsewhere the road that runs on the far side beyond the pub car park is usually available, opposite the church.  Please do not park in the drive at the back of the church unless you require disabled access. Do not use the Methodist Church car park under any circumstances

The floor of the sanctuary of our church has recently had to be replaced, and, as this has been very costly we have started a special appeal for funds to cover this expense:

Online donations can be made on our Everyclick
