Walkern Church, Hertfordshire

Walkern is one of Hertfordshire’s most impressive parish churches, dating back to around 950 AD, a Saxon wall from this period has managed to survive to this day.

The bulk of the rest of the church is 12th to 14th Century and could be considered a typical larger parish church with an absolutely typical Hertfordshire tower and spike spire.

Not unusually everything was heavily rebuilt by the Victorians around 1840-1880.

We are left with one of the larger churches of the county and certainly one of the most impressive both by situation and by looks.
