Fodor's Review

Dating back to 1229, this church contains a rare medieval "Doom painting" of Judgment Day that is considered to be one of the best preserved and most complete of the few such works left in Britain. Created around 1470 and covering the chancel arch, the scenes of heaven and hell served to instill the fear of damnation into the congregation. It's best seen on a spring or summer evening when the light through the west window illuminates the details.
