Lovely little Tring, a bit of Hertfordshire stranded in Buckinghamshire, has a suitably impressive and ancient Parish Church. The first church is said to have dated to a little before the Norman Conquest, but nothing remains today any older than the 15th Century.
The tower and nave are certainly from this period, although the Church has been almost continuously tweaked and embellished from this period onwards.
The bells date from between 1624 and 1882 when the usual Victorian restoration occurred.
Although a mish-mash of styles, perhaps appropriate in a place like Tring, the church is one of the most attractive in the county and forms a great focal point for a town that would be on many a tourist itinerary if it were in, say, Yorkshire or Devon.
