St Mary's Aspenden

 Mary's Aspenden

Situated at the west end of the village road St Mary's offers a traditional style of worship with services on most Sundays, see the Buntingford Journal, or the church noticeboard for the current list of services. The church has a choir, a peal of bells with an active team of ringers and a family service on the first Sunday of most months.

We know that a priest in residence was recorded in the village as early as 1086, the time of the Domesday survey, and deep in the north wall of the church nave are some traces of Saxon workmanship, so it is possible that a place of worship has been on this site since about 950 AD.
