St. Michael's in North Rode was built in 1845 by C. & J. Trubshaw. The village hall, called the Daintry Hall was built in 1835 and presented to the parish of North Rode by Commander Michael Daintry in memory of his father, George Percival Daintry, the last squire of North Rode. It is now used by a playgroup. Arthur Mee notes that the panels of the altar with lilies, a vine and a cross were carved by a local (unnamed) lady.
