Visited on 27th March 2018. It was very bright weather and hard to get a decent shot of this beautiful church. It was closed.
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.
Exterior and views around the churchyard:
St Laurence is a very old church which now finds itself at the end of a runway at Southend Airport! There is a sarsen stone at the base of a pillar, very difficult to photograph. These pics were taken on a visit to the church on 5th May 2017.
I couldn’t embed a Google map so I will give you the address instead: St Laurence & All Saints Church, Junction of Aviation Way and Eastwoodbury Lane, Southend-on-Sea, SS2 6UN
St Laurence is a ground floor ring of 6 bells, here the ropes are kept up out of harm’s way with a spider
