This rather handsome church, typically Hertfordshire in its style and look, stands on high ground overlooking the River Mimram. The earliest church seems to date to the 13th Century, but there isn’t much to see of this kind of age.
The bulk of the church today is from extensive restorations in the second half of the 19th Century.
Various members of the Cowper family are interred
here, as is Benjamin Truman, founder of the Truman Brewery. The artist Spencer
Gore is also buried here as is Dorothy Paget the racehorse owner, whose funeral
cortège was formed of a string of racehorses.
