14/82 Church of St Michael
& All Angels
Parish Church, originally Chapel of St Bees (dedication uncertain). Said to
date from C15; north aisle added 1830. Later additions and alterations.
Pebble-dashed rubble. Graduated slate roof with outshut to north aisle; stone
copings with bellcote to west end and apex cross to east. Single cell with
north aisle. Single storey. Plank door with window to left and 2 to right, all
2-light. Interior: North arcade of elliptical arches carried between
monolithic stone columns with stop chamfers and octagonal caps. Similar plaster
transverse arches to main body of church springing from corbels bearing winged
heads. Decorative plaster bosses to each bay, some foliate, others with open
bible, star of David and (over altar) dove in sunburst. Royal coat-of-arms of
George III, in plaster on west wall, suggests early C19 date for plasterwork.
Richly carved panelling behind altar is C17, brought from York Minster after
1829 fire there; pulpit to left has similar carving. C19 texts on wall to
either side of east window; remains of C18 texts on south wall.
