The little church of St Michael, East Torrington, is accessed through a farmyard and a garden.

It is the 1848 work of the ‘rogue’ architect S. S. Teulon, though only the crocketed buttresses for the gable of the bellcote show signs of his eccentricity.

The interior of St Micael's church, looking into the chancel.

The reticulated tracery of the east window is in typical style of the Decorated period (early 14th century).  It is of course part of Teulon's 1848 restoration.
