The building


mappleboroughgreenIt appears that a settlement of some kind could be found at Mappleborough Green from a very early date.  According to Dugdale the village was originally known as “The Haywood” or “The Grove Haia”, which in 1201, Peter Corbizum granted to “William son of Geoffrey”.   In 1341, this land was surrendered to Peter de Montfort of Beaudesert.   Until 1824 it remained part of the common waste of the parish of Studley.

The Church of the Holy Ascension is a ‘plant’ of Studley and was commissioned and financed by Sir William Jaffray, Bart. (of Skilts).  Built in memory of his first wife Mabel, the Church was initially opened on Wednesday 11th July 1888.   The Dedication sermon was preached by The Lord Bishop of Worcester. (The Church was included in the Worcester Diocese.)

The building specifications are recorded in a document written at the time of the Church’s unveiling.  ‘For its size the Church has an aspect of unusual dignity due alike to the excellent proportions designed by the architect and to the skilful manner in which the constructional ornament is combined with severe simplicity of general lines.’
