St Michael's is a Grade II-listed church that is steeped in history. The earliest record of a church on the site is 1259 and the oldest surviving parts of the building date to the 13th or 14th century. In February 1646, the bell tower was blown up during the Battle of Torrington in the First English Civil War. The Royalists, who held the town, had stored more than 80 barrels of gunpowder in the church. As the Roundheads captured the town, they shut prisoners in the church and the powder was unwittingly detonated, resulting in many deaths.
