HANFORD ST 81 SW

1/47 Church of St Michael 4-10-60 and All Angels (formerly listed as Parish Church) GV II*

Parish Church, now school Chapel. Possibly medieval in origin but largely remodelled, C17 (datestone 1650). Ashlar with stone-slate roof. Undiffer- entiated nave and chancel with west porch. The east window is of 3 cinquefoiled lights and Perpendicular tracery under a pointed head. The remaining windows are of 2 lancet lights with plain spandrel lights under pointed heads. Porch has a south doorway with,lugged, moulded architrave over which is an idiosyn- - cratic entablature with a highly pulvinated frieze, the whole supporting a moulded elliptical archway. Double C17 plank door.

Internal features: plastered barrel roof; C19 wall painting to east end by Mrs Symer of the mansion: C19 glass: other fittings largely C19.

Pevsner disputes the C17 date for the main body of the church, favouring a later period. (RCHM, Dorset, vol.III, p. 101/2, no. 1. Newman, J. and Pevsner, N., The Buildings of England: Dorset, 1972, p.225. )
