St. Michael & All Angels, Highworth, Wiltshire, England



St. Michael's own Website
Britain Express Photos of Highworth


You will see from our photos of the outside of St. Michael and All Angels that it is difficult to photograph due to all the surrounding trees and houses.  We suggest going to their website (see link above) to see their photographs!  Perhaps we should return in winter when there are no leaves to obscure the view.

St. Michaels is surprisingly large for the small town of Highworth, and is full of history.  There is a board inside the church with a guide to its history - do make sure you look for this if you manage to visit the church yourself.  It will tell you about the cannon ball strike, the tympanum, the font and many other features of the building.

We'd like to thank all those people who made us welcome on the days we visited - what friendly and helpful people you were!

We have been to Highworth a couple of times and have more photographs to add but haven't yet found the time to do so.

The church is a Grade I listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the:  British Listed Buildings  website.

More information about Highworth can be found at the  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
