Thaxted – St John the Baptist with Our Lady and St Laurence

Thaxted church is one of the most beautiful in Essex, and is situated at the top of a hill lined with notable old houses. There is a Guildhall dating from around 1450 just nearby and also a windmill. All very photogenic!

I have lots of photos of this church, a couple from a visit on a beautiful sunny day on 19th March 2012 and the rest from a visit on another beautiful sunny day on 6th April 2017.

Finchingfield – St John the Baptist

Finchingfield is supposed to be the prettiest village in Essex, and it is certainly a lovely place. The church is on top of the hill overlooking the village green and pond. I visited on 6th April 2017 on a warm and summery spring day.

Here are a few of the photos I took but there is so much more to see, it is definitely worth visiting.
