Rampisham (St. Michael and All Angels)

Rampisham Church

St. Michael's Church, Rampisham, Dorset

The oldest part of the church is the 15th century tower. The chancel is by A. W. N. Pugin, dated 1845-47 while the body of the church is by John Hicks, 1859. Claudius J. P. Beatty (1982) notes that it is very much to the credit of the then Rector of Rampisham [the Rev. F. J. Rooke] that "he should have prevailed upon the scintillating genius [Pugin] ... to undertake this work." In the churchyard there remains the base of a massive churchyard cross.
