A picturebook country church

St Michael's sits in a quiet, idyllic valley west of Bridgnorth. With its stone walls and moss-covered roof, this mostly Norman church looks as much a part of the landscape as the trees that surround it.

In February, a carpet of snowdrops enlivens the graveyard. The church's interior is sparsely furnished and has a lovely Norman arch in the centre. Just inside the door are the only remains of a couple of figures forming two incomplete scenes from a Nativity cycle.

Nearby is Upton Cressett Hall, a privately owned manor, built in the reign of Elizabeth I.
