Known locally as "The Friendly Gem" St Michael’s [Grade 2*] has records dating back to 1150 when the first stone building was erected. Prior to that there was most likely a wooden building on this site and the Church is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The east wall and chancel are medieval but the Church is now fundamentally Georgian. The tower, rebuilt to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Jubilee now has a peel of 8 bells. The original 4 bells were rung at the restoration of Charles II in 1660 and when George I was proclaimed King. The ancient churchyard is an oasis of tranquility and contains 24 War Commission Graves.
The Church is generally open on weekdays between 10am and 12 noon. If you are making a special journey please phone to check.
