Essex Churches (T - Z)

Wendens Ambo - St Mary the Virgin

Wendens Ambo - St Mary the Virgin 

Originally Norman, with a characteristic squat Norman tower. The chancel and south aisle were added during the 13th century. In the 15th century the clerestory was added with three windows to each side, the easternmost pair being of brick but inserted only a few years after the clerestory was built. The south porch was rebuilt c.1895, and at the same time the organ chamber was added. The north aisle was rebuilt in 1847.
The building is Grade I listed.
