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 the 12th century, and we understand it is still open.

Sutton St Michael's Church is just a short distance away from Sutton St Nicholas, but the difference in buildings is marked. St Nicholas's has a classic square tower, which could belong anywhere, but St Michael's is classic Herefordshire, with nave, chancel, and bell turret with pyramidal roof. Its most remarkable feature, however, is inside - a mid-17th century font, probably originating during the Commonwealth. Pevsner describes it as "very small, an urn of classic shape, carried by the demi-figure of an angel holding a book". It is no longer in use, but set in the sill of a south window, having been found below the east window of the chancel. Again, Pevsner is to be acknowledged for pointing out that at the time, the altar table would have stood in a west-east position in the chancel.

There is almost always something remarkable to be found in a Herefordshire church!

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.
