The tiny church of St Michael, Duntisbourne Rouse is on a dramatic site on the hillside overlooking the valley of the river Dunt in the Cotswolds. The nave is essentially Saxon (11th century) and to this were added a chancel in the twelfth century, with a crypt below, and the small Perpendicular tower in the fifteenth century.
The interior of the chancel received a makeover in the thirteenth century and retains a lot of its wallpaintings from that time.
The crypt is an atmospheric space and it too had wallpaintings, one can be seen to the left of the window.
Here is a detail of that wallpainting, the figure of a male saints. Sadly it’s too far gone to be identified. When new this must have been a vibrant and colourful space.
