Search St Michael and All Angels Churchyard:

The Church of St Michael and All Angels is situated on the lawns of Croft Castle, which it predates. It was built in the 14th century to serve the 'lost' village of Croft, to the south, which has long since disappeared. There were considerable alterations in the 15th century, and again in the 18th century, when the chapel of Croft Castle was demolished and monuments, pews and other features were removed to the church. The bell turret was added in the late 17th century.
Many of the owners of Croft Castle are commemorated in the church and its small south-facing churchyard, which has lovely views over the countryside and the Croft estate, planted in the Picturesque style with fine trees.
