St Nicholas Church at Ash

Situated in The Street, Ash, Kent, CT3 2EN, this large historically interesting grade 1 listed parish church has many renowned medieval features. It has the best collection of medieval monumental effigies in Kent, including one to Jane Kerriel (c. 1455) which reveals a unique horseshoe head-dress. It is dedicated to St Nicholas and dates partly from the 12th century. It has a 15th-century tower with a lead covered spire which was once used as a navigation aid. The tower houses a ring of ten bells. Services are held regularly throughout the week; for more information go to the church website - http://www.s8nicholas.org.uk (opens in a new window.) The church is open every day and visitors are welcome.
