heraldic memorial

Lilley, Hertfordshire

Lilley is a small village which stands between Hitchin and Luton in England, on the highest ground and within some of the most striking scenery in the area. Telegraph Hill is just over 600 feet above sea level.

The church, rebuilt in the 19th century, contains some original features and a fine Elizabethan heraldic memorial. Coincidentally, Lilley lies within the parliamentary constituency of Hitchin and Harpenden currently represented by Peter Lilley. It has two pubs: the Silver Lion and the Lilley Arms. Amusingly, for all Lilley's out there, the low-lying land to the south of Lilley is called Lilley Bottom.
