St Michael

Standing forlorn, with only a farm for company, St Michaels is a precious little building.

Martin, Lincolnshire

Opening times

Open daily, dawn to dusk.


Church Lane

Although restored in 1877 and built of a patchwork of greenstone and brick, the church is essentially Norman.  

You enter the church through a striking Norman doorway, its capitals carved with grotesques. Inside is a spectacular chancel arch, dating from around 1200 and a wonderful example of the transition between Norman and Early English. This narrow opening admits to a dark chancel, sheltering a stone altar with medieval, mensa.

On the east wall of the chancel is a bracket formed from a waterleaf capital.
