Listing Text


4/18 Church of St Michael
and All Angels
20.12.60 (formerly listed as
St Michael)

Parish church. An ancient site close to the Roman road, and a possible
Christian successor to a heathen temple; a Saxon church stood here but the
earliest part is the Norman chancel arch; C13 chancel (restored), North
transept of 1827, nave restoration and 3-bay south aisle of 1863, C19 porch
and vestry, and bell turret of 1907. Steep tile roof over most of the
building, but a low-pitched slate roof above nave and north transept, shingled
spire to timber-framed bell turret, with gables to the lower tile-hung framing.
Walls of flint with stone dressings, rendered to the north transept, the nave and
the south aisle (or nearly equal width and height) having decorative brick
treatment at verges, relieving arches, and as horizontal bands. Windows are
small or tall lancets in nave and aisle, with one coupled light in the nave and
triple lancets at the east end. Inside, the appearance and fittings are
Victorian, with several small wall monuments of the early C19: the arcade rests
on thin cylindrical columns, merging to wide square cushion caps. The nave roof
(1506) has moulded tie-beams with king-posts and Queen Struts. Plain stone font;
and 3 benefaction boards displayed above the south door in the porch. The
architectural features repeat those at Haverden and Smannell, both designed by
William White (but Pevsner says Hakewill).
