The Church of St Michael, Barton is a 12th century Norman Church with a very rich history. The church was built on a pre-historic site from local sandstone by an order of Augustinian monks and, over the centuries, it has been extended which is detailed in the website’s interactive floorplan. Historic interest ranges from Anglo-Saxon engravings which includes the face of Edward I to some surprising trans-Atlantic connections; stained glass maple leaves and carvings of the ‘Stars and Stripes’.
Designworks worked with marketing expert, Sam Bunting, and photographer Steve Barber to produce a website and leaflet for the church. The website and leaflet document the history and architecture of the building which provides insight and interest for visitors to the church and the local community.
