Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1300, and we understand it is still open.

According to Mike Salter's The Old Parish Churches of Herefordshire (1998), west tower, aisled nave, chancel and north vestry were all built c.1300-50, with only later portions are 15th century tower top, and timber south porch, and 16th century upper storey to the vestry. He also notes that the porch entrance is like half an octagon and cusped.

Pevsner opens his description saying it is "a sizeable church, all of a piece", built in the late 13th to early 14th centuries, and "by a master with pronounced tastes, familiar, it seems, with the workshops of Bristol ... his liking for triangles and three sides of a polygons instead of arches points in that direction".

So... a church which has survived without the need of a Victorian restoration. It is pleasing also to know that St Michael's is a Grade I Listed Building - see the British Listed Buildings website for details. In the present day, it enjoys the benefits of belonging to the Benefice of Kingsland with Eardisland, Aymestrey and Leinthall Earles.

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
