SK 41 SW RAVENSTONE

6/53 Church of St. Michael 24.11.65 II*

Parish Church of early C14, restored C19. Coursed and squared rubble throughout. Buttressed low west tower with ogee arched openings to bell chamber, and low broach spire with lunettes. Nave with clerestory with paired traceried lights in square openings, south aisle and chancel, all parapetted externally. Traceried windows to south aisle have hood moulds, but all window stone work looks a C19 renewal. Blocked north doorway with round arched head and cushion capitals, south door of C1300. Interior has double chamfered narrow arch to west tower, nave arcade of 4 bays, double chamfered, with minimal capitals to inner arch, and outer arches forming continuous hood mould. Double chamfered chancel arch, Victorian reredos, piscina, sedilia and east window. Some C17 panelling to north of altar, and early C18 black and gilded wrought iron altar rails, school of Robert Bakewell. Font, a plain square with chamfered corners on solid stone base probably predates the Church.
