Wendens Ambo, Essex

Today I visited the delightful Essex village of Wendens Ambo, which has a very lovely church and surrounding cottages.  The picturesque scene of the cottages and the church with a spire has been photographed and painted many times.

The west tower and entrance date back to Norman times.

Wendens Ambo: the stained glass window showing scenes from the parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15).

The wall painting of St Margaret of Antioch.

The Church of St Mary the Virgin, Wendens Ambo:  the  organ

Wendens Ambo: the font and cover.

The brass of Sir William Lovenay. To the right of the brass figure is a double piscina.
