St Michaelís Church, Aynho
St Michaelís Church, Aynho
The church is Grade 1 listed and is unusual because it comes from two completely different periods. The tower is all that remains of the original church from Edward IIIís time. The tower is in the Decorated style with an embattled top. During the civil war the church was severely damaged and all but the tower was demolished in 1723.The Nave was then rebuilt in the Classical style with pediments and high arched windows to match the architecture of the adjacent Aynho House. The name Aynho comes from a Saxon name meaning Spring on the Hill.
