Ashwell is a pretty village with a vibrant feel, set in the northern edge of the county of Hertfordshire, and is home to over sixteen hundred people. It has a fascinating history which extends far back in time to the Bronze Age and beyond. A stroll around this leafy location will uncover surprises at every turn, there are attractive thatched cottages and buildings from across the ages from Medieval times, to the Guildhall and impressive half timbered 16th Century town house which now houses the Museum, a close look nearby will reveal an unusual wall which is topped by Thatch. Agriculture, still features today just as it did in the past, although the industries of Straw Plaiting and Brewing have ceased. There is a poignant reminder of those who were worse for wear with the Village Lock Up. However, today's visitors have a choice of three pubs, there are a few local shops, and at the heart of the village stands a fascinating church dedicated to St Mary whose fabulous tower rises 176 feet dominating the skyline. Inside visitors will find Medieval Graffiti telling tales from when the Black Death visited here. It's surrounded by beautiful countryside, there are several Springs from the River Cam, and yet London is only forty five miles or so away.
