Bulley (St. Michael)

BULLEY (St. Michael), a parish, in the union of Westbury, hundred of the Duchy of Lancaster, W. division of the county of Gloucester, 5ΒΌ miles (S. E. by S.) from Newent; containing 229 inhabitants. This parish is of great antiquity, and is noticed in the Domesday survey under the name of Buttelege: it comprises about 500 acres, of which the greater portion is good arable land, and the remainder indifferent pasture. The living is a perpetual curacy, annexed to the vicarage of Churcham. The church is a small structure in the Norman style, with a low spire, and consists only of a nave, at the east end of which is a beautiful Norman arch, that led into the chancel, now destroyed; there is a similar arch at the south entrance.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
