St Augustine’s church can be seen rising above the houses in the background of this print. There has been a church in Broxbourne site since at least the 11th Century however St Augustine’s dates from the 15th century. The church contains the tomb of Sir John say and his wife Elizabeth. He was Lord of the Manor in the 15th century and paid for much of the rebuilding of the church.It is a large church with an embattlement tower, nave, two aisles and two chancel chapels.
