The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Ashbury, Oxfordshire

By comparison with other nearby villages the parish church, the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, is large. Set on a hilltop, it has fine views across the parish and is approached by foot up a steep cobbled path to the entrance. Parts of St. Mary's date from the 12th century although most of the building dates only from the 13th to 15th centuries. There has been a church at Ashbury since the 10th century when monks attached to Glastonbury Abbey lived at Ashbury Manor.
