Where the boundaries of four counties meet

Built of warm-toned sandstone, medieval St Michael's elegant spire is seen above the trees, in rolling wooded countryside, where the boundaries of four counties meet. Nearby are earthworks of former settlements, but now only a few scattered houses remain.

With late eighteenth-century box pews and other fittings, but with no major Victorian restoration, it is an uncommon survival of a medieval church where time has stood still. There are good bosses in the roof and a fine incised alabaster slab.

A contribution can be made towards the conservation of the church by texting STF to 70970 to donate £5, or 70191 to donate £10. Thank you for your support
