A lovely church at the heart of this quaint old market town. A well used place of worship, and the surrounding grounds all year round.

How can you review a church ?, It is what it is. Peaceful and well looked after. The river sometimes needs the shopping trollies removing but that is not the fault of the church.

This building makes a gorgeous backdrop to what I consider to be the most attractive part of Hitchin overlooking the water. There is also a pleasant walk by some very old looking shops down by the side of this church which are worth exploring too.

Visited the church recently and found it very interesting indeed. Much of the building was added at later dates and there was plenty of amusing things for children to find. Well worth a visit.
