Views over rolling countryside

The brick-and-greensand church tower of St Michael's can be seen on a hillside above the main road and the church has great views over gently rolling countryside.

The walls show clear signs of alterations over the centuries: there was once a south aisle and the near windowless north wall may have been adjacent to monastic buildings. Prominent inside is the exquisite Norman chancel arch with carved capitals; above it, a medieval wallpainting depicts a crowned head.

There is also a seventeenth-century pulpit and some interesting monuments.
