St Michael's church, Uffington

Grade I listed.
The present church building was begun on the 12th century and grew over many centuries. Along the north side of the nave are semi-circular arches of 3 bays, which show the transition from Norman arches to Early English. This is the oldest part of the building. The south arcade was built later in the time of Henry III. There is also a north chapel. The western tower with crocketted spire is 14th C.

The restoration of the main building was undertaken by Charles Bertie from 1679 to 1684 when the roof and chancel arch were made more in keeping with the architecture of this period.
A second restoration was carried out by Charles Bertie’s descendent George Albemarie Bertie, 10th Earl of Lindsey, between 1864 and 1866 with new roof, walls and columns in the nave, and interior wall linings in Casterton stone. New mouldings, parapets and buttresses were made of Clipsham stone. A new chancel arch and piers, pulpit and doorway were made using Ketton stone. The font was added in 1866 and has marble inserts.
The church contains a 14th C arched tomb with knight effigy, also a memorial to Robert Manners and son Olyver. There is a nice set of handbells from 1909.
