In Hitchen Herts St Mary’s makes a hit

St Mary's Hitchen treasures in store here

Like several towns in Hertfordshire Hitchin is has been modernised and messed about. Yet despite this right in the town centre sits the good-looking church of St Mary’s.

Rosie the puppy and I pressed our way through the pancake races being held in the churchyard, (it was Shrove Tuesday) her nose twitching madly.


We entered through the north door into a wide and long interior, welcomed by a lovely12c font sadly spoilt a bit by Cromwellian forces.

Sunlight flooded the interior making the most of some lovely treasures inside St Mary’s including some exquisite woodwork in the chancel chapel. The races over we retreated back to the car park.
