The present church of St Michael replaces a chapel founded in 1621. It is set apart, outside Rampside village and on a rise with sea views. Although constructed c. 1840 in the Gothic style there have been a number of subsequent alterations, including a porch and vestry in 1866 with a new chancel in 1892. Apparently, an ancient monastic chapel originally sat in the grounds but this has long since disappeared. Once known as the ‘sailor’s church’ because of associations with the sea it has been more recently associated with the rural community. There is a simple and light filled interior space. The pews date to the 1940’s.
