Alsop-en-le-Dale, St Michael & All Angels

St Michael and All Angels Church in the hamlet of Alsop en le Dale was first mentioned in the charters of 1240 as a dependency and its early Norman origins are still to be seen in the doorway, with its zigzag patterned mouldings over the door, and in the window on the south wall.

The building was restored extensively but sensitively in the nineteenth century, when the tower and Chancel were added. In 2001 a new stained glass window by Henry Haig was installed to mark the millennium.

The church is the centre of this small community and although our regular congregation is small, the building is enjoyed by many visitors throughout the year, some of whom have close family connections with past congregation members, and others who just enjoy the tranquillity and simple beauty of the building.

As part of a benefice of five churches St Michaels also plays its part in the monthly service rota, providing an opportunity for worship at times when other services are not available.

 

Please note: Every Bank Holiday, apart from Boxing Day, refreshments in the form of home made cakes, tea, coffee and soft drinks are served from 11am - 4pm in the church grounds.
