Elmstead Market - St Anne & St Lawrence
The church is essentially 14th century although signs of a Norman doorway can be seen on the north side, partially obscured by the new church hall extension. The exterior is covered with a "depressing C20 render" (Pevsner). The low tower, built in in the 14th century, is still unfinished. There are unusual small, low windows in the wall of the south aisle. The church is sited about a mile north of the village, on Essex flatlands adjacent to the A120 and is Grade I listed.
