St Michael, Tidenham Chase, Gloucestershire
I had stopped here on my way back from Brockweir to Tidenham in the hope of digitalising the interior but found it locked. I had been inside some thirty years ago but now found myself returning again with the keyholder. It is a simple two-celled church by Sidney Gambier Parry, 1888, and largely unaltered inside. The east window's central light has a rather miserable-looking St Michael, almost cartoonlike.
I headed home, having achieved my one objective for the day, and managing to get inside all of the churches I saw, although two needed a return visit.
