The church was locked when we first arrived, with a sign that it was closed for cleaning. By the time we’d explored the graveyard, the cleaner was through and invited us in, as long as we promised to be careful on the still-damp floors.
This church dates from the late 13th century. The town goes back much further; it was originally chartered in 709. According to Wikipedia, there’ve only been three murders in the town, a woman in 1707, a US soldier in 1945, and another woman in 1976. (In case you’re looking for a nice murder-free locale.)
