2/96 The Church of St Michael and all Angels, with its boundary wall and gate piers

-

- II

Church, opened 1897. J. Nicholson Johnson of Yeovil, architect. Ham stone, squared random coursed, with ashlar dressings: Welsh slated roof with red ornamental clay tile ridges. The whole in a careful early C15 style, with touches of Art Nouveau. Short Chancel, 5-bay nave and North aisle, 3-bay Lady Chapel on South side, with short South aisle and tower at the West end of the South aisle: vestry projecting from end of North aisle: main entrance through South tower doorway. The tower of 4-stages, the 2 lowest visible only from South and West: West face plain at first stage; to the South pointed arched doorway with moulded chamfers (no imposts) with floriated design in spandrels and rectangular carved panel above with vine ornamentation, the whole flanked by angled shafts culminating in turretted pinnacles. At second stage two small cusped arched windows set high; in addition on the West face a large three light C15 pattern window: the third stage has glazed C15 tracery windows to all faces, and the fourth stage similar windows with pierced stone panels. The tower has offset corner buttresses, double plinth and string courses, with crenellation to the top: a stair turret on the South-west corner with slit windows, arched arcaded blind panels to the parapet, has a flagmost at its top. The North elevation is cleanly divided into bays to the North aisle by offset buttresses between which are pointed arched mullioned windows with C15 pattern tracery: there is a double plinth and string course over which there is crenellation - there is no clerestorey to the nave - the roof is continuous over nave and aisle. The Chancel window matches: the vestry projects a total of 2-bays. The West elevation is simple, with pointed arch doorway flanked by shafts with pinnacles to the North Aisle, and a West window of the same character as all other windows: over it a panel of 7-blind lancets at the crown of the gable, surmounted by a pierced stone cross. The South elevation follows the general character - the Lady Chapel projects slightly more, and is taller than, the South aisle: the Chancel is not crenellated, and at the East end there is a plain gable coping with block and cross finial . The interior not seen - the church is normally kept locked during the week (January 1983). Boundary walls of local stone rubble random coursed with rough crenellated top averaging 1 to 1.5 metres high: 2-pairs gate piers with occasional boasted stones and moulded facetted caps.
