The History Files The History Files needs your help

Last year our first donation drive was a complete success, thanks to some wonderful people who helped us gain a security certificate and meet some of the increasing web hosting costs. This year, that certificate needs to be renewed and another round of hosting costs need to be supplimented. As the History Files is a non-profit site it still needs your help. Please click anywhere inside this box to make a small donation via PayPal so that we can continue to provide highly detailed historical research on a fully secure site. If every visitor donated just a penny then we'd cover a year's running costs in a day! Your support is highly appreciated.

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.
