Medieval Church of St Michael - none recorded at Oulton in the Domesday survey although claimed in (S2).
Church of St Michael. Probably Norman, tri-portite originally, central Norman tower, chancel, rebuilt in C14 & nave much altered in C15. Ruined chapel nearby. Traces of (Norman?) S transept from original cruciform church (S3). For details see (S1)(S2).
Scarfe records this as a probable Domesday Minster (S4).
