  • One of the few churches I've found open so far. Cool and quiet. There are some remarkable, very large wooden carvings and the pulpit is unlike anything I've seen. Confessionals are adorned with intricate carvings too. Presently there's are many well illustrated panels informing of the slave trade past and present. I would like to see well documented labelling on overseas foodstuffs, clothing and sports shoes proving they're not produced with slave labour
