St Mary's, Ashley

St Mary's, Ashley

Ashley is a small picturesque and historical village its name means ‘clearing in the meadow’. It has had a church since the thirteenth century, and its present church dates from 1845. It is a Norman style cruciform building of flint with Bath stone dressings, with a chancel, nave and transepts and a turret with one bell. The benefactor of the church was the Marquis of Bute. But the church is not just historical – it has a ramp providing disabled access and a toilet.

The church is open during daylight hours and you are welcome to come in and visit, enjoy the peace or use the prayer corner where you will find a collection of prayercards and candles to light. At other times you are most welcome to borrow a key from the hurchwarden or from the village shop.
