East Herts Part 1: Churches of Ware

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.
