Bracewell, St Michael's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The most interesting feature is probably the south doorway, which is typically Norman, the chancel arch, also Norman, and the tower arch, which dates to the 14th century and is a good example of the Pointed Gothic style.
Very little of the original medieval glass remains, but there are fragments of 14th-century glass depicting coats of arms of the local gentry. The simple font is probably also Norman.
The nave pews are by the famed Kilburn woodworker, Rober Thompson of Kilburn, aka 'The Mouseman', and show Thompson's favoured mouse motif.
As of this writing, the church is open afternoons throughout the year.
