A church set in picturesque countryside

Surrounded by picturesque countryside, you reach medieval St Michael's by walking along a country lane, over a stile and across a field.

It has a wonderful mix of windows in different Gothic styles. The tower and the west part of the nave were pulled down in the latter part of the eighteenth-century leaving the basic layout we see today.

Careful investigation reveals two fourteenth-century monuments partially hidden in the south wall. The two uppermost corbel stones on the west wall of the nave suggest the position of a gallery, long since vanished. Below these are three carved medieval corbel stone 'faces' rescued from the old church.
