St Michael's Church

DUNTISBOURNE ROUSE, GL7 7AP

This enchanting little church, on the slope of a Cotswold hillside, is just as ancient as it looks and feels. The nave reveals its origins: here are two Saxon doorways, in addition to other distinctive Saxon herringbone masonry and quoins with long-and-short stonework. There are traces of early wall paintings. The tiny crypt chapel below the Norman chancel has a small, unglazed, round-headed east window to let in the morning sun. A medieval cross in the churchyard completes the idyllic scene. The saddleback tower that helps lend the building its timeless air was actually a later addition to the church, and dates from 1587.
