A tiny atmospheric church

An atmospheric church in a tiny village, St Michael’s is mainly of the 14th-century, although fragments from an earlier building are built into its walls.

The font is 15th-century and there is good woodwork of the 17th-century. Two strange stone carvings built into the sill of the north window appear to be parts of a lion.

The low chancel screen and the lectern came from Great Malvern Priory in 1910, when a major restoration of St Michael’s was carried out.

The small bell-cote contains two bells, one dating from the 15th-century.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as ‘Keyholder nearby’, this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
