4/32 Church of St Michael
Church. Early C13 west tower, C13 chancel, late C14 south aisle and south
chancel chapel, C15 porch. Coursed cobbles with freestone dressings, brick
porch. 2-stage west tower, 3-bay nave with south aisle and south porch,
2-bay chancel (probably reduced in length in C19). West tower: double-
chamfered plinth, lancets to first stage. Single lancet to belfry, west
face. South aisle and south chancel chapel: buttresses with offsets, and
3-light windows with Perpendicular tracery under elliptical arches. Round-
headed south door with continuous roll and hollow chamfers. South porch:
shallow pointed arch on grotesque corbels under hood-mould. 3 blocked
lancets to west elevation, Lombard frieze in moulded brick beneath south
gable. Chancel: chamfered plinth. Square-headed priests' door with
continuous chamfer. C19 east window of 3 lights with tracery in
Perpendicular style under hood-mould. Coped gable. Interior: pointed
double-chamfered tower arch with moulded imposts on responds with attached
columns. South arcade of 3 pointed double-chamfered arches on piers with
continuous but displaced mouldings. Late mediaeval screen with open
Perpendicular tracery and brattished top rail surmounted by C19 rood and
accompanying figures. Double-chamfered pointed arch on grotesque corbels to
chancel south chapel. Mid C13 octagonal font with 2 trefoil-headed blank
openings to each side. Funeral hatchments to nave north wall and to south
aisle south wall. South porch contains re-set mediaeval cross head with
Christ displaying stigmata. C19 chancel roof rests on a series of fine
moulded plaster corbels, probably mediaeval, of which only 4 of the original
8 now survive. These may themselves be the remnants of those formerly in
the nave, as evidenced in an early C19 watercolour at the west end of the
church. They are for the most part grotesque heads and masks.
