History of Ingram Church

St Michael and All Angels Church is steeped in history. It’s thought that a place of worship existed in some form on this site before the Norman conquest. The oldest surviving part of the building today is the bottom half of the tower. Fires and the effects of the England-Scotland Border Wars after 1296 meant that the church fell into serious disrepair. Between 1877-1879, the building was almost completely restored by Rector James Allgood. A few years later, in 1895, Rector Chicele Chambre turned his attention to improving the tower. These restorations largely give us what we see today…a charming old country church, set in a medium-sized churchyard, fronted by an iconic (1928) lychgate.

A Short History and Guide to Ingram Church

A guide book by the late local historian Sarah Wilson is available for purchase for a small fee within the church. Sarah was much loved within the community and her guide takes you clockwise around the church, giving descriptions of interesting features. There’s also background information on some of the individuals and families who are remembered on the lovely stained glass windows and commemorative plaques.
