Sideways on to the main street at the west end of this east Hertfordshire town. Large and mainly 14th and 15th century but much restored by George Godwin in 1852. The organ has received a major refurbishment in 2016 and the old brass coloured pipes are shown alongside the new silver coloured ones replacing them. There are a huge selection of corbels and carved headstops of which only a few are shown here.

The eight panels on the font represent various saints such as St George, St John and St Christopher, as well as the Archangel Gabriel. The church is certainly worth a drop in, as can be seen from the photos here. […]
