  • A beautiful church in a lovely scenic spot. The key reason to come here was to see the memorial to those who who took part in Operation Source. The attack to neutralise the heavy German warship, the Tirpitz, using X-class midget submarines.
  • Nice place for a short visit with a historically important graveyard.
