Lonely Planet review

The interior of this tall-spired medieval church contains a fabulous interior, graced with an impressive collection of stained glass, including a 1340 window depicting the Tree of Jesse, a Biblical representation of the lineage of Jesus, and a magnificent oak ceiling in the nave which largely all collapsed in a huge gale in 1894 when the top of the spire blew off. Much of the glass in the church is sourced from Europe, including some outstanding Dutch glass from 1500. There's a small cafe at the rear.
