In a beautiful setting with winderful distant views. A remarkable survival of a largely unaltered medieval church.

The situation of this church, is considered to be significant in that it is claimed that many of the churches dedicated to St Michael lie directly on ley lines. A ley line is a line of energy that is believed to radiate outwards from the mos hallowed of Engliush sites, Glastonbury. All such churches are on "Tor Sites" overlooking farmlands. The origins of this church could go back to King Alfred's time, or beyond. Its style is certainly early English with just a west tower, a nave with south porch and a chancel. The ravishes of time and reconstructions of dubious quality have left their marks, but despite this it retains its medieval character and charm. You can see evidence of wall paintings beneath the plaster in the nave.
