Ashmansworth Church History

We have uncovered some old documents and pictures, some over 100 years old, giving an interesting insight to the history of Ashmansworth and its church.

  • An interesting description by an unknown author in around 1971.
  • An extract from a booklet published by Walter Money in 1901.
  • An extract from another book, believed to be early 20th Century.
  • In 1972, the church was in a poor state, so an appeal was launched. 
  • The schedule of work undertaken in 1972 is shown below.
  • The church was extensively remodelled in 1899. We don't have many details, but there is a picture taken beforehand, showing the box pews.
  • The church has a number of medieval wall paintings which are now very faded, but there is a sketch taken in 1901, showing much more detail of one of them.
  • A description and analysis of the paintings, made before they became rather faded!
  • In the 1970s, work was undertaken to try to preserve these paintings. There are progress reports from 1971, 1973 and 1975.
  • It has also been reported that there is the remains of a Tudor Tomb, to the left of the porch. A letter tells about this.
