St Mary the Virgin, Little Bromley

This delightful country church is surrounded on all sides by flat Essex farmland. The nave is Norman, the chancel of about 1300, and the timber-framed porch 16th century. The colourful mixture of building materials in the tall 15th century tower gives it a marvellous texture. There is an octagonal font, carved with charmingly rustic emblems of the four Evangelists and Tudor roses. Two stained glass windows commemorate the martyred King Charles I and Archbishop Laud.
