Feature Sets

This is primarily a 13th-century church with a W tower, nave with a N aisle and four-bay arcade, and a 14th-century chancel which was restored in the post-medieval period with brick. The tower was restored in 1886 and again in 1959. A Romanesque pillar piscina stands in the W tower.


Though Ashby is mentioned in the Domesday Book, there is no record of a church here in 1086.



Piscinae/Pillar Piscinae


This is a rather large and complex pillar piscina in terms of its design. For a comparison, see the single-shaft pillar piscina at Wragby, All Saints.
