There is excellent stained glass in the chancel, particularly the east window.
The tower, dated 1504, houses five bells dated 1678 and a clock dated circa 1700.
St Michael and all Angels Church, Alkerton
St Michaels Church, Alkerton is a beautiful building in a beautiful setting. It stands on a steep hillside hidden by the Old Rectory and by trees. It is noble yet homely, solid but not oppressive.
The church dates from 1200 with a late 14th century clerestory and chancel. The chancel was rebuilt in the early 17th century. It is listed Grade I under the Town and Country Planning Act.
Electricity was introduced in 1996 with heating and lighting in keeping with its character under the guidance of the churchwardens Henry Ewer and Margaret Bloomfield.
