Ampthill Church, Bedfordshire

St. Andrew’s Church in Ampthill is hidden away to one side of the town centre. It dates to the 12th Century, but of this original structure little, if anything, has survived beyond the floor plan. The majority of what remains today is 14th Century with the tower and chancel being completed at this period.

Like so many churches, the Victorians got their hands on Ampthill Church and undertook an expensive rebuilding program which changed the interiors entirely and the exterior was heavily “Gothicised”. In a town with as many surviving Georgian buildings as Ampthill the Church is rather inauspicious and a slight disappointment.
