St Michael and All Angels
St Michael's Church Upper Sapey is a Grade II* listed building that dates back to the Norman period with many fine Norman arches. The Tower and spire were built in 1859. This historic church has been the focus for community life for hundreds of years. The Church is situated in the centre of the village in an elevated position with views over the countryside. It is a simple rustic Church that is much admired by all who visit it. Once fully repaired, new uses will include coffee mornings, educational courses and creative activities.
Top tips from feedback:
- Don't plan any opening event too soon after completion, allow plenty of time for delays and teething troubles.
- Monitor existing cracks a year before work starts and use an engineer as micrometre readings are very fine and not easy to set up or read high up on a ladder! It will cost but it is worth it.
