About Furneux Pelham

Furneux Pelham or Furneaux Pelham is a village and civil parish in Hertfordshire, England. The village is one of the Pelhams, part of an early medieval larger swathe of land known as Pelham, in the Domesday book of 1086, including Brent Pelham to the north and Stocking Pelham to the east and north-east.

The village is largely linear covering much of the width of the parish from east to west and is buffered by gently sloped fields with some woodland to all sides. It is known for its ford (Violet's Lane) to the north along the upper Ash which is over 1 kilometre long.

St Mary the Virgin church stands proudly in the heart of the village. Crafted from flint, the ancient building of worship dates back to 1162. The Norman de Furneux family, from where the village gets its name, regularly used the church.

It's medieval carved wooden roof was restored and elaborately painted in the 1960s by the artist John Norbury.

The spire has the motto "Time Flies, Mind your Business'" on the clock.
