St Michaels Church at Sutton on the Hill in Derbyshire
St Michaels Church
The church at the top of the hill is called St Michaels and is a familiar landmark amongst a scattered argricultural community. It contains a 14th century tower with a spire that was rebuilt in 1841. A few other parts are 14th century like the aisle arcade, but mostly, the church was rebuilt in 1863. It contains an unusual monument, to a Judith Sleigh, who died in 1634, in that, instead of an effigy, it is a standing coffin carved in black stone with its handles.
