The Polish Air Force and Royal Air Force served nearby at the former RAF Faldingworth and this is commemorated throughout the church including in a stained glass window and the porch gates.
St Michael's is a very simple church composing of a nave, chancel, and south porch, with a bell cote over the western gable. There is a late 13th century window in the chancel and a blocked north arcade from the same period. The unadorned chancel arch is 12th century, but all the interior furnishings date to the Victorian restoration. Flanking the altar are a pair of 14th century effigies. One depicts a woman with her feet resting on a dog, her hands clasped in prayer. An inscription records her name simply as 'Helene'. On the opposite side is an effigy of a male, his feet resting on a woolsack. The inscription states his name as 'William'. But who were these people?
