Fork Church is a historic Episcopal church located near Ashland, Hanover County, Virginia. It was built in 1736, and is a one-story, gable roofed brick building. It measures approximately 34 feet by 74 feet and has walls 22 inches thick. The front facade features a small pedimented porch supported on square brick columns, both probably added in the early-19th century. Also on the property is a contributing church cemetery.
