The current church was built to replace the medieval church, which was on the point of collapse, between 1854 and 1856. The church was built at the expense of Sir Peregrine Acland and Sir Alexander Fuller Acland-Hood at a cost of £16,000. The church was designed by John Norton in the early Decorated style.

This catholic cathedral was built 1896-1907 in a French Gothic style by Quebec architect Francois-Xavier Berlinguet, but the cathedral suffered extensive fire damage in 1913. The interior was substantially redesigned and rebuilt in a more English-inspired idiom by architect J. M Hunter.

One of the churches I visited in 2009 in the Lake District. This medieval church sits on a raised hill in the middle of this little town. Etruria UK has captured a delightful view of St Michael's. More about the church here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Michael_and_All_Angels_Church,_Hawkshead
