Less well known than the 17th King Charles the Martyr Church in the town, St. Barnabas is a late Victorian brick and stone church with an 'Anglo-Catholic' tradition. It has been described as 'lofty, sturdy, spacious and devotional', and the interior contains a number of small shrines. It should provide an interesting contrast to the mediaeval buildings that feature more frequently in our programme.
There is no charge, but church donations are welcomed.
