Broxted – St Mary the Virgin

We visited this pretty country church on 13th May 2019, and it was bright and sunny. The church was open. It was surrounded by fields, one with sheep in it, and everywhere the trees were growing leaves, and clouds of Queen Anne’s lace bordering the roads and fields. Essex at its finest.

Lindsell – St Mary the Virgin

We visited this church on 13th May 2019. It was sunny and bright and the photos are all a bit contrasty because of the brightness. The church is approached down a little lane and then past the front of Lindsell Hall – it felt a bit obtrusive but it was obviously the only way so they must get used to people going past!

The church was closed because work was being done, and there was a large van parked right in front of it so I have tried to get photos without the van in.

Woodham Ferrers – St Mary the Virgin

We arrived at this church, hidden behind a steep hill in the village, on a hot sunny day 18th June 2017, just as a christening was coming to an end. So the church was open and after the guests had all left we were welcomed in by the vicar.

We parked across the road in a car park marked “overflow car park” . . . which I suspect was an overflow for the pub, not the church 🙂
