Church of St Michael and All Angels (Ford)
The church of St Michael and All Angels stands in the grounds of Ford Castle, but predates it, being built in the early 13th century. It was extensively restored in 1853 by John Dobson who was responsible for the north arcade and chancel arch. Six medieval grave slabs or parts of slabs are set in the floor at the west end of the nave. One of them is carved with a set of bagpipes. In the churchyard, monuments to Louisa, Marchioness of Waterford and George Culley can be found amongst others. This parish church is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law.
