Maldon – St Mary the Virgin

Visited on 29th May 2018 – very damp and humid weather, but the church was open so I was able to get photos inside for the first time.

Ulting – All Saints

We paid a visit to this little church on a very wet and humid day, 29th May 2018. The air was still and full of gnats, and it was completely silent. You used to be able to park in an area just outside the gate to the churchyard but unfortunately this area has had to be closed off due to vandals and now you have to park at the top of the lane and walk down. No hardship though, the track leads down past an extension to the graveyard and then a house and back garden, all very interesting for nosey people like me 🙂


The church was locked so all pictures are of the outside:


Sutton with Shopland – All Saints

We visited this redundant church on 13th May 2018, it was closed as it’s not now being used as a church. But it’s being well maintained, the churchyard was looking good and there is a church hall beside it which is obviously being used. The church is now owned by Sutton Hall next to it, and there is a drive to the hall going past the side of the churchyard.

There was pretty frothy Queen Anne’s Lace all around and the rape field opposite was still in flower. Beautiful English springtime 🙂
