The Nave

Walk to the centre transept of the church. This is the Nave and the main body of the church. Notice the outward leaning of the pillars. This could be to counteract the inward thrust of the walls but more likely to compensate for the overdone perspective due to the length of the nave. The pine roof and the pews are Victorian and date from the 1874 renovations.

From this central point you can look at the Chancel ahead of you, the organ and tower behind. As you look ahead to the Chancel you can see St Anne's Chapel and the hospitality area to your left..

Walk towards the back of the church to view the organ.
