St Michael's Church, Dalston - March 2018 (1)
Dating from the 12th and 13th Centuries, St Michael's Church, Dalston was restored in 1749 and substantially rebuilt in 1890. The unusual double bell-cote is 19th Century.

The Church is Grade II listed.

There is little web information (see: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) and LinkExternal link ) and, while the Church also double as the local library, no Guide Book or box for donations. This visit therefore lacks much information and further research is required.

Entrance to the Church is by this unusual stone and slate roofed lych gate - the town War Memorial is to the left.
Listed Buildings :: SK2168

A listed building in the UK is one which is on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.
A listed building may not be demolished, extended or altered without special permission from the local planning authority (who typically consult the relevant central government agency, particularly for significant alterations to the more notable listed buildings).
For a building to be included on the list, it must be a man-made structure that survives in something at least approaching its original state. Most structures on the list are buildings, but other structures such as bridges, monuments, sculptures, war memorials, and even milestones and mileposts may also be listed. Some structures can also be classified as Scheduled Ancient Monuments rather than Listed Buildings.
