2/67 Church of St Michael
24.2.50 and All Angels
Norman, C13, C17. Narrow single-cell church of Norman origin but mainly C13 features,
bell-turret, south porch, C19 vestry. Tile roof, shingled bell turret with spire.
The external walling is cement rendered, but the stonework of the filled-in 2 bay C13
arcade to a former south aisle is exposed, brick stepped buttresses at the angles; the
vestry is of flint with stone dressings. The C17 porch is timber-framed on a low
wall, the cheeks being rendered and the gabled front clad in recent vertical boarding
(with a round arched opening). There are some small C13 lancets on the north side,
and on the south side an old double light in a square frame, and later wood-framed
windows, the east window being a modern triple lancet. Within, the separation of nave
and chancel is marked by the remains of a timber-framed structure (including a rood
beam), with 3 arched openings above a recently-widened square opening; the surrounding
part is plastered, with painted texts (at the top) on either side of a framed Royal
Coat of Arms; to the south side is an endowment board. The walling of the north side
of the nave contains painted panels with texts of the Creed and the Lord's Prayer.
There are several wall monuments (of the C18 and early Cl9) in the chancel and the
south wall of the nave, where there is a small exposure of the arch and column of the
former arcade; two hatchments are hung high. The west wall has a C18 piscina; Norman
tube font. Old moulded tie-beams extend a little below the ceiling.
