Church of St Michael and All Angels, Middlewich, Middlewich - Cheshire East (UA)

Town centre church predominantly dated c1500. The crenellated western tower with diagonal buttresses echoes the side aisle parapet and crocketed pinnacles. Four and a half bay nave with eastern chapels with screens adjoining the chancel. Significant instability associated with the pinnacles to the aisle parapet walls, which have been temporarily removed after growing concerns about public safety. The church has been successful with a Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship application for work to the north elevation, but a second south phase is required.
