  Out on the end of the Dengie Peninsula above the marshes sits the small parish from which the peninsula takes its name, and its church small too, typical of most of the churches in the area. A towerless church with a bell turret, and locked, which seemed a shame, as reading about it made it sound more interesting than it first appeared. A very odd blocked doorway sits on the north side of the west end - what could it have been for?

The war memorial is beautifully set in the church wall, gracious and imposing without being intrusive or garish. And then I cycled on through Tillingham, past the open parish church of St Nicholas which I had liked very much when I'd visited it the previous year, and over the long ridge and down into Bradwell-on-Sea.

Simon Knott, June 2020
