St Mary the Virgin, Ashwell

One of the largest and most attractive villages in North Hertfordshire. This is also one of the largest and most impressive village parish churches in the county, reflecting its medieval prosperity. It is virtually all of the 14th century. In the tower is some well known inscribed graffiti showing the old St Paul’s cathedral. The clerestory contains some medieval glass.
