Ashton under Hill


Anglican: St Barbara

This limestone church is of Norman origin and includes new building work and restorations from several later periods up to the 20th century. The chancel, rebuilt in the 17th century, is of particular interest.
The church is open daily during daylight hours.  (Ref. A Church near You, November 2013.)
