Damn the cunning on the native Ashford folk. I have visited many times and had no idea it had a hidden oldy worldy square with a museum and beautiful church. It's cunningly tucked away discreetly behind the high street so none of us out of...More

Intense concentration on quartets by Haydn and Schumann pleased a small but...More

I love looking around historic churches and admiring the architecture and stained glass windows. This is a very pretty church and well-worth having a wander around. Volunteers are also around and very knowledgeable about the origins of the church.
