St Michael and All Angels

SY9 5EE  Parking, wheelchair access, open daylight hours

St Michael's is an early medieval foundation with a Norman west wall and blocked doorway.  The late nineteenth century reconstruction includes an imposing weather-boarded tower. The  "Hurricane stone" is a memorial to a family which perished in an eighteenth century blizzard. 

There are  wall tablet memorials and windows to the Medlicott and Rogers families.

This peaceful Church is in a small village which is uniquely located on a hill top, probably because it is a location that could be defended more easily.  There are wide views from the tranquil churchyard - with the Longmynd to the east and the River Onny to the west.  Many local footpaths provide opportunities to walk through the beautiful countryside. 

The Crown Inn is now sadly closed.
