Just a short walk from the main house at Baddesley Clinton is St.Michael’s Church. The first church here was dedicated to St James, but the current dedication is to St Michael. The layout is simple, consisting of a west tower, nave, and chancel. The tower is worth noting; it was added around 1500 by the lord of the manor, Nicholas Brome, as penitence for murdering the local priest. The chancel windows are 16th century, but there is a two-light 13th century window in the north wall of the nave. The south doorway probably dates to the late 13th century also. The font is a simple 16th century affair in octagonal shape. I have only included two inside shots of the church, and one of them is a bit blurred sadly, but I hope you can get a general feeling of how attractive this little church is inside. We are in Birmingham today on a local photo groups outing to the canal area of the city so I may not have time to answer any comments or view your postings, I will catch up tomorrow.
