Upton Warren


Anglican: St Michael

Only the 14th century tower remains of the original medieval church. The nave and chancel were entirely rebuilt in the 18th century. The 1880 stained glass east window is a remarkable and unique portrayal of the Book of Revelation. (See link to more pictures)
St Michael’s is open daily between 10am and 4pm.  (Ref local information, 2012)
