St Michael The Archangel Church Lyme Regis
We welcome you to St Michael the Archangel Church in the beautiful town of Lyme Regis. We are part of the Golden Cap Team Ministry in West Dorset.There has been a church here certainly since AD 774 when the land was granted to the monks of Sherborne, who needed a source of salt from the sea to preserve food. However, the present building dates from Norman times and the remains can be found in the porch and the base of the 58 ft tower where there is an excellent Norman arch. The upper parts of the tower are C16 and the nave was completed around 1506.
