Southchurch (Southend on Sea) – Holy Trinity

I hadn’t been to this church for about 9 months so I thought I’d pay it a visit . . . on a chilly and overcast January day, 8th January 2018 . . . I walked round the graveyard and bumped into an acquaintance, Jonathan, who I met on a local adult education course last year about Essex churches.

When I exclaimed at how different it looked, he told me that they had been clearing the churchyard all last summer and autumn. It does look a lot brighter, particularly the entrance past the door in the west wall, which was very overgrown before.

I didn’t go into the church, just took photos outside.
