St. Michael's church, Buslingthorpe, dates largely from 1835, though the tower is medieval.

Its chief interest is one of the earliest brasses to be found in England; that of Sir Richard de Buslingthorpe, perhaps of 1300.

Interior of the nave and chancel at St Michael's.  It is largely the Victorian reconstruction of 1835 but the chancel arch responds contain some medieval material.
