About St Michael's, Ryston

St. Michael’s is Grade II listed and stands just inside the park of Ryston Hall. It is a small church consisting of nave, chancel, south porch and west tower with tiled pitched roof. The building is principally of Carrstone/conglomerate rubble walling, mainly rendered and with limestone dressings. Roofs are plain tiled with clay ridges.

The church was extensively restored in the Victorian period. The base of the tower is Norman and the tower arch is original. The south doorway facing the park is early 14th century. Windows to the nave are flat headed from the perpendicular period and those in the chancel in the decorated style. There are low windows to both sides of chancel and the tracery to the piscine in particularly intricate.

The monuments are mostly in commemoration of the Pratt family of Ryston Hall.

The last Quinquennial Inspection was carried out in 2019. One of the monuments has been removed from the north wall and is in safe storage until funds can be raised for its reinstatement.
