Type and Period (1)
Bettley & Pevsner record, 'Formerly a chapel of St Barnabas, Great Tey. Recorded in 1285. Nave an chancel in one, mainly of flint rubble, and belfry with very pointed little weatherboarded spire. The E. window and one S. window are early C14'. C14 roof.<1>
Single-celled church, said to have been erected in 1352; certainly no features are demonstrably earlier, but the puddingstone quoins are remarkable if of that date. Originally a chapel-of-ease to Great Tey and dedicated as such in 1352; made an independent parish in 1533. Graveyard totally destroyed, with headstones being used for paths and boundaries. Archaeologically not very promising. Grading: CIIIa (listed B).<2>
