Ashwell Church is dedicated to St Mary.  It was built during the 14th Century.  It is one of the largest village churches in Hertfordshire, with an impressive spire that can be seen from far off.   The tower holds a ring of 6 bells, the heaviest weighing 18 cwt 3 qrts and 101 lbs.  

Medieval graffiti

Medieval graffiti can still be seen in the church, including a drawing of the “old” St Paul’s Cathedral and Latin inscriptions about the plague and terrible storms that hit the area.
