Ashton Parish Church


This week's view of My World shows a view of the interior of Ashton's historic Parish Church. This is the parish church of St Michael and All Angels and there was a church on this site before the Norman Conquest. The earliest parts of the present building date back to the 15th Century although most of what you see in the photo only dates back to Victorian times, when the church was given a major update.

The altar is at the far end, below the ancient flags and the huge east window. The church has boxed pews which all face the unusual three-tiered pulpit which can be seen half-way down the nave on the left hand side.

    1. Just my little point and click Sony camera, Ian. It handles dark lighting conditions quite well.
