Aspenden

Local Area

The one road of this picturesque village leads to Aspenden Hall, and then continues as a bridleway to Cottered. It has a traditional village green which houses the Cricket Club, a pub
(The Fox) and St Mary's Church. The church has a tomb which marks the resting place of
Sir Robert Clifford. Sir Robert was a knight to King Henry VII. He was involved in the plot to remove the King, but he betrayed his co coconspirators and was banished to Aspenden.
His role of Lord of the Manor was subsequently held by Ralph and William Freman - Ralph was Lord Mayor of London and the brothers are also buried in the church.
