HERITAGE RATING: Heritage Rating  ?

Churchill, St Michael's Church

A 14th century church in a small Worcestershire village, St Michael's origins may reach back to the early medieval period. Fragments of a 12th century building can be seen in the walls of the current structure. The church is externally very simple, with only a nave and chancel, and a small bellcote at the west end.

There are a mix of interesting historic features, including an octagonal 15th century font, and a chancel screen and lectern brought here from Great Malvern Priory. The bellcote contains a pair of bells, one of which dates back to the 15th century. There is some very nice Jacobean carving in the interior, and what appears to be partial carvings of a lion built into the sill of the north window.

There is a single window in each wall of the nave. To the east of each nave window is a small hole in the wall, about 3 feet off the ground. The function of these holes is nort known, but they do provide a bit of an historical mystery. There are several memorials, but none terribly old - the oldest being to Thomas Barker, who died in 1688.

St Michael's is not in regular use, and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust.
