THERFIELD CHURCH

Hertfordshire

Therfield Church, Hertfordshire

The first church in Therfield dates to at least the 13th Century and it followed the usual pattern of church life in late-Middle Ages England. By the late 1800s, however, it was in such a terrible state of repair that it was disused and in danger of collapse. The solution was to almost entirely demolish and rebuild and the structure was reconsecrated in 1878.

Some parts from the old church were saved to be put into the new one, such as the windows, pulpit and font plus the bells from the tower, the oldest of which is dated to 1597.
