Church History

It was founded in 1716.
The chapel of St. Micheal the Archangel is a builing of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, north porch and an embattled western tower with spire containing one bell : there is a stained window : the church was thoroughly restored in 1868 at a cost of 3,000, defrayed by the Rev. Canon John Cross. The register dates from the year 1854. The living is a perpetual curacy, gross yearly value 110, with residence, in the gift of the vicar of Preston, and held since 1880 by the Rev. Tertius Augustus Buzzard M.A. of Cambridge University.
