Some parts of the manor House date from the twelfth century, others are extensions or rebuildings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

It has associations with the Tyrwhitt and Chaplin families.

St Michaelís now consists only of a small nave with bellcote and chancel.  This view of the east end shows how close the building is to the modern road (B1398).

The Tyrwitt family once had a seat here, and in the chancel is an elegant memorial to Mrs Jane Tyrwitt d 1657.

This view of St Michaelís from the west shows the prominent bellcote attached to a relatively small nave and chancel.

The former Norman arcade can be seen in outline within the present north wall (to the left).
