Standing at the end of a green at one end of Redbourn village is the ancient church of St. Mary. It has the look of one of Bedfordshire’s chequerboard churches betraying how close you now are to the border with that county.
The church which survives today dates from around 1100, although as usual work was undertaken periodically for the next few centuries. The tower is 15th Century as is the rood screen inside the church, a very old example of such.
In recent years a programme of repair and restoration has brought the church into particularly good condition and it presents a quintessentially English village scene when viewed across the green.
