St Michaelís Church
St Michaelís Church
The church has a marker stone dated 1621 but this relates to its days as a chapel of ease. It was rebuilt in 1840, in the perpendicular Gothic style of architecture. Once known locally as either the "farmer's church" because of its rural setting, or the "sailor's church" since many a drowned sailor was buried there in the past.
