The church has commanding position in its beautifully kept churchyard, on the edge of the village.  There is easy access for all via  lytch gate from village street. The warm sandstone of Norman to Tudor architecture, plus 18th

century spire and old gravestones in a neat churchyard make St Cassian’s a most attractive place.
