    Built in the 14th century for a community which no longer exists, the Church is a tiny jewel. It is about 3 miles from my home and overlooks the Wid Valley towards the ancestral home of Lord Petre at Ingatestone Hall.

    It is very much in use and sits proudly atop a hill from which 7 other spires can be seen.
