Back to St Andrew's Church, Ashingdon


Image Description

It seems apparent, that the present building dates from a time no earlier than c1300, and therefore those who make claim to this being a minster profess that it is a successor to the original building called for by King Cnut. Whether this parish was the place where the battle took place is unknown. There is another possible location of the battle, this being Hadstock, near Ashdon. Hadstock St Botolph's website will tell you more on that church's claim here.
