The church in Chesterton was mentioned as far back as 1086, when the Domesday Book was compiled, but there was evidence of a church in the village earlier than that. As far back as 955, the Alwalton Charter mentions a parish boundary with Chesterton.
St Michaels has some fine monuments inside, including the Beville Monument and the Dryden Monument, both of which are pictured elsewhere in this section of the site.
Below, a long distance view of St Michaels. This picture was taken from about two miles away, on the far side of the Nene, heading towards Castor!! Please note the boat on the river which was heading towards Alwalton as the photo was taken.
