Pleasley, St Michael

Pleasley, St Michael

Built in about 1150, St Michaels church is a simple single-aisled building displaying a Norman chancel arch and a later 14th century tower.  The unusual Norman font depicts a priest performing a baptism. 

An annual well dressing and flower festival is usually held on the second weekend of July.  Visitors are able to watch the well dressing in the making during the preceding week.  A Christmas tree festival takes place during the first weekend in December. 

Although the church has been separated from the village by a bypass road, the setting still remains peaceful and tranquil. 

Visitors are most welcome, but please contact the keyholder first.  Please note that there is parking on a quiet lane next to the church.  The church is accessible by wheelchair, but up a slope from the road.
