Just off the high street the quadrangle is a beautifully laid out memorial garden and monument. It's a really peaceful place to sit and contemplate the sacrifices made by so many in both world wars. There's also a small library here and a museum which is full of local historical architectural artefacts plus lots of agricultural implements dating back a... 更多
Easy to miss on the busy high street and to do so would be a mistake. Lovely tranquil spot either to sit and relax or to pay your respects at the war memorial. Take some time and visit it.
