View of the 14th century Church of St Mary’s in Ware, Hertfordshire. The lands on which it was built were owned by Joan, the wife of Prince Edward of England who was known as the ‘Black Prince’. Later in the 15th century the church was enlarged and built in a style known as ‘Perpendicular’ by Margaret Beaufort, the mother of Henry VII. It is still thought to be a fine example of this style of architecture. The church has a distinctive battlement bell tower which is surmounted by a spire.
