St Michael and All Angels Church

The remote church of St. Michael and All Angels, Grid Ref: 89/206398, overlooks the Solway Firth and dates back to 1120, and celebrates its 900th anniversary in 2020. It is almost entirely Norman in character with a beautiful central Norman arch. The ceiling is Jacobean, wooden, painted and contemporary with Rubens. The South side displays a strange collection of men and beasts whilst the North holds dark demonic figures. The interior is glorious and has been a centre for Christian worship for 900 years.


The Church is normally OPEN: All daylight hours. Disabled access.

However, at the moment the building has to remain locked in the 3 days before and after a service. Therefore, please check with one of the churchwardens before visiting Torpenhow.
