The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building,[1] and is under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.[2]

The church stands in a now isolated position in a field, set well back from the road.[3]

St Michael’s Church originated in the 12th century, with additions and alterations in the 14th and 15th centuries.[1] The tower and the west part of the nave were demolished in the later part of the 18th century.[2] The church was partly rebuilt in about 1832 and the bellcote added in 1890.[1] Though the church was declared redundant on 23 August 2004 and vested in the Churches Conservation Trust on 19 December 1989, it continues to be used occasionally for worship.[3][4]

The church is constructed in coursed stone rubble with ashlar dressings, and it has a tiled roof. Its plan consists of a nave and a chancel under a single roof, a south porch, and a bellcote at the east end. The bellcote has a pyramidal roof. Along the sides of the church are buttresses. At the west end is a two-light window. The north wall contains a door and two three-light windows, and in the south wall there are four three-light windows. The east window also has three lights.[1] Some of the windows contain Decoratedtracery, and in others the tracery is Perpendicular.[2] Above the entrance to the porch is a copedparapet, and a stone inscribed with 1830.[1]
