Longstanton: the redundant St Michael's Church
Longstanton: the redundant St Michael's Church
"A very remarkable little church mostly of c 1230," wrote Nikolaus Pevsner. "The most interesting and impressive feature is the W front with buttresses at the angles but also two big buttresses running up the middle with three set-offs to the original bell-cote." The thatched church, which has been imitated in Philadephia and South Dakota, is in the care of The Churches Conservation Trust - see LinkExternal link .

The church is in the corner of the churchyard and it is not possible to photograph all of it from the east or south.
