  • Saint Oswald's Church, Ashbourne is remarkably old, having been started around 1220, about the same time as Salisbury Cathedral. It is grade 1 listed and is beautiful with its 212 ft. spire. It has some lovely stained glass windows including some of the 13th century and one in Pre-Raphaelite style by Christopher Whall. The eight bells are rung from the floor of the crossing using ropes which are 75ft. long. Note the touching white Carrara marble monument to Penelope Boothby who died in 1791 aged six.
  • Realy nice church, where they still have working bells and ropes, the people were realy freindly here, what can i say it was a nice church
