The church of St Michael and All Angels is situated on a hill in the ancient parish of Arthuret and overlooks the market town of Longtown with fine views of the surrounding countryside. The current church dates from 1609 and is designed in perpendicular style with battlemented parapets. It was built through national subscription on the order of James VI and I and, allegedly, due to a plea by Archie Armstrong, his court jester, who came from this area. The grave of Archie is in the churchyard. Arthuret has a large churchyard comprising an old section on the South side and a relatively new area on the North side.
