Approach to Witley church
Approach to Witley church
The justly famous 18th century church of St. Michael & All Angels is one of the finest Italian Baroque churches in the whole of Britain and is so well worth a visit as to be beyond recommendation really.

The exterior is interesting, well proportioned and atmospheric but the interior is just amazing, with richly gilded ceiling, wall and ceiling paintings by Antonio Bellucci, funerary monuments to Thomas, Lord Foley and his family by John Michael Rysbrack and ten large painted glass windows by Joshua Price dated 1719-1721.

One of my favourite places in this area.
