Bassett Avenue, Southampton, United Kingdom, SO16 7FD
St Michael's Church is the oldest building in Southampton. It was named after the patron Saint of Normandy and its central tower dates from 1070. Isaac Watts' parents and sister are buried here and the Old Tournai Font (1170), chained Bibles, a Book of Martyrs, a rescued 14th-century Holy Rood lectern and Philip of Spain's treasure chest can all be viewed inside. The church is also renowned for having survived the blitz during World War II because its spire was used by the Germans as a landmark and their pilots were ordered not to hit it. Open daily to visitors throughout the summer, courtesy of the Friends of St Michael's. Informative leaflets in most languages are available.
