Church of St Mary and St Michael (Doddington)

The Church of St Mary and St Michael dates back to the 11th or 12th century. The early chancel had the north aisle added in the late 12th or early 13th century together with large extension on the west end. In 1838, the church was restored and this entailed rebuilding and shortening the chancel. Later that century the western extension became the chancel and the original chancel became the porch and vestry making an unusual arrangement. Inside the porch are three medieval grave slabs. This is a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
