1/41 Church of St Michael


- II*

C13, circa 1500, and 1877. Church of early origin with a chancel and nave in
medieval times, added to after 1500 by a western tower, a north aisle and
north chapel. In 1877 there was a full restoration which lessened the width
of the aisle and included a new arcade. Red tile roofing (pantile over aisle).
Rendered walling with stone dressings, generally, but there is Tudor brickwork
on the gables of the chapel and as dressings to the tower walls of brownstone
(also used on the restored aisle). Modern Perpendicular windows; one old one
on the south side of the chancel; the tower openings are original with stone
framework and brick relieving arches. The tower has crenellated brick parapet,
massive diagonal corner buttresses with flush brick quoins, stone bands, rubble
stone base and high plinth, the west door is bricked up. Inside there is a fine
late C15 font, a bench of circa 1500, an ancient wooden chest, a wall brass, and
several wall monuments.
