St Mary's Church in Ware

The town of Ware is situated in Hertfordshire, close to Hertford. On the corner of Church Street and the High Street, St Mary's Church is a spacious cruciform building with a battlement bell tower which is surmounted by a spire.

St Mary's Church in Ware

There is evidence that a church has existed here since before 1086. Domesday Book mentions that a 'priest' lived in the town, but most of the modern church was built in the fourteenth or fifteenth century in the perpendicular style.
