St Michael & All Angels

The immediate setting is very rural, in fact the approach is through a working farm which we do ask visitors to treat with respect.

About this church

The building is mostly medieval but with a north aisle of 1904. There are two rather battered medieval effigies inside said to be of the Martels.

The most famous resident of the very small parish was Henry Jones whose chief claim to fame was as the inventor of self raising flour.

There is an active group of local Friends and if you would like to help them or us please do get in touch.
