St Matthew

The first mention of a place of worship in Ashford is given in a record in the reign of King Edward I, dated 1293, granting a dispensation of taxes during the time of the Crusades. This ancient chapel, dedicated to St Michael, was some 50 yards from the east window of the present church. From Saxon times until the middle of the 19th century St Michael's Chapel was a 'daughter church' of St Mary's, Staines.
