Buildings in Latchingdon

St Michael's Church

 St Michaels Church, Latchingdon

A church has stood on this site since at least 1250 ad. 

The church dates back to 1618 but only the nave and south porch remain. 

In 1976 St Michael's Church  was deconsecrated and converted into living accommodation. 

The owners ask that their privacy is respected and that members of the public do not trespass on their property. At the owners request no current photograph is displayed on this site. 

The burial ground next door is still in use.
