ST. MARY-THE-LESS CHURCH
The Church of St. Mary-the-Less was one of at least four important churches in Hertford in Saxon times. St. Andrew’s and All Saints’ have both survived (albeit as 19th Century rebuilds). St. Mary-the-Less had a more unfortunate fate being pulled down around 1514, having stood for around 600 years near where the town library now stands.
This fragment was found whilst building the library and was erected as a public fountain just outside the library entrance. It is now no longer a public fountain and rather stands as an odd fragmentary monument painted a rather unconvincing shade of bright white.
