Church of St Michael and All Angels: Polythene wrapped nave
Church of St Michael and All Angels: Polythene wrapped nave
There is extensive repair work going on on the south side of the church of St Michael and All Angels, and the magnificent interior has been draped in plastic sheeting to reduce dust. It does not obscure the whitewashed interior or the angel roof, however, nor yet the loyal hatchment over the chancel arch.

The church is a grade I listed building, see the English Heritage site for details: LinkExternal link
St Michael's church, Edenham
