Saint Mary the Virgin Church and Churchyard
Steeple Ashton, Wiltshire, England

The village of Steeple Ashton is located 4 miles SE of Trowbridge. On entering the village, the Church is clearly seen on the LHS. The information was collected from headstones and also plaques from inside the church. Some of the headstones are very old and too weathered to read.

The church of Steeple Ashton once had a steeple 186 ft high, hence the name of the village. The steeple was destroyed by lightening in 1670 and never rebuilt, however it still retains a tall tower and many pinnacles described by Simon Jenkin's as "a fairy castle awaiting a tournament" It belongs to the Church of England.
