It is free to visit, although the only access is down steep steps carved into the side of the cliff.Bosherston ChurchThe small parish church of St. Michael and All Angels is a grade II* listed Norman church of the late 13th century, built on the site of a former church. The building is in the form of a cross, having north and south transepts. Since its restoration by the Cawdor family in 1855, its highbacked old pews have disappeared and its Norman windows have been replaced by those of later Gothic design.Under the North Transept window there is the tomb of a Dowager Duchess of Buckingham, an antecedent of the Duke of Norfolk. The fact that she was a widow may be gathered from the veil and cloak shown on the figure carved on the tomb. That she was of noble birth can be seen by the coronet on her head and the dog at her feet. Under the South Transept window there is a stone tomb surmounted by a figure depicting a Crusader. It is thought to have been carved in the 14th century.Bosherston is in Pembrokeshire. Use our United Kingdom road trip tool to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Bosherston.
