Little Bromley, Essex

St Mary the Virgin is in the care of the CCT and was open when I visited. Very restored and rather plain I liked it for its simplicity and for the fact that it was open.

ST MARY THE VIRGIN. Nave and chancel in one, and W tower. The nave is Norman, see one N and two S windows. The chancel belongs to c. 1300, E window of three lights with intersected tracery, N and S cusped lancet windows. Plain C16 S porch. Of the same time the completion in brick of the C15 W tower. Diagonal buttresses, three-light W window. - FONT. Octagonal, stem with buttresses, bowl with the four Symbols of the Evangelists and four rosettes. The figure carving is very primitive. - COMMUNION RAILS, c. 1700, with twisted balusters. - PLATE. Paten, perhaps Elizabethan.
