St. Mary the Virgin Church in the heart of Ashford is an impressive building with historical elements still visible today. It may have been an early Norman structure but was enlarged or rebuilt during that period as a few stones at the corner of the nave and transept indicate. The foundation of the current building dates from the late 13th or 14th Century with major renovations undertaken in the 15th Century, and further modifications and improvements in the following centuries.
