St. Michael & All Angels, Stewkley

St. Michael & All Angels, Stewkley

DSCN0434This church features in 1000 best churches and with good reason. It has an unaltered Norman interior and is open every day. The signboard outside doesn’t say that the church is open. There isn’t a website but a presence on achurchnearyou which has no visitor information on it.

Inside I found a guide – cheap at 50p, and some place mats of the church, postcards and a free Old Testament history book. Something I have not seen anywhere else. 11 people had signed the visitors book for October. There is a good World War 1 display with some booklets on those who died, produced by the local history society. There are some clearly marked time switches to enable visitors to put on the lights.

DSCN0436There is a prayer tree but there didn’t seem to be any ‘leaves’ to add to it – perhaps this was a legacy of a Family Service? There was an open Bible.

I rate this lovely church as OK+ for this study
