Medieval church with spectacular ruins beside it. Earliest fabric dates from 1114. Magnificent ruined west front is mid-13th C. with important figural sculpture. The church is listed as Grade I and the ruins are a scheduled ancient monument. Beautiful vaulted ceiling that soars to a great height. The chancel screen and road at the east end are impressive, as is the dogstooth arch that is also part of the ruin. Set in 8 acres, the large trees and parkland to the east and south give a lovely setting. The lack of pews within the church make it more spacious. There are toilets, a servery, an eating area, meeting rooms and a visitor centre connected to the church. The church has its own gravelled car park with parking for 15-20 vehicles. Cambridgeshire PE6.
