Hawridge: St Mary
The Church is at present closed due to the Coronavirus.
St Mary's Hawridge is a small village church in the Chilterns. Hawridge (pronounced Harridge), and its close neighbours, Cholesbury, Heath End, Buckland Common and St Leonards, call themselves the "Hilltop Villages".
These villages are rural places, and Hawridge has a fine Common. You will see walkers and riders and cyclists throughout, although few residents now work in the villages. The Church community is obviously an important part of the wider village life.
Before the Coronavirus, the Church held a regular pattern of Sunday services, some shared with and held at the neighbouring churches at Cholesbury and St Leonards. Since the restrictions, St Mary's has remained closed (excepting one wedding) although the Churchyard is open.
We look forward to reopening when it is safe for us to do so.
