Church of St Michael



C14, C15, C16 and 1920. A church of early origin, with late-medieval replacements.
A comparatively small east end, comprising a chancel (a rebuild of 1464 with a
fine exposed timber roof within), a south chapel and vestry (of C14), and a
larger north (War Memorial) chapel of 1920. The larger scale nave and aisles
(1520) have five bays, enclosing the tower at the west end, and there is a 2-storeyed
south porch of 1539. The east end has steeply pitched red tile roofing, flint
walls with stone dressings (chequer-board pattern for the north chapel) for
windows, bands, buttresses. The main body of the church is in stone ashlar,
the nave having a flat roof (lead) behind a crenellated parapet the windows of
three lights in the clerestory and four lights in the aisles; there are cill bands, a high
moulded plinth, and plain parapets to the aisles. The Tower is of four stages, with
a crenellated parapet, octagonal corner buttresses capped by pinnacles of 1879,
with a large west window. Within there are three hatchments with the Royal Coat of
Arms (of Elizabeth, James I, and William III), a font of 1885, and some windows
at the east end containing small areas of C16 glass, from the Holy Ghost Chapel.
