Stanford Rivers Church, Essex

This small country church dates to around 1150 and is in simple Norman style. The chancel was rebuilt in the mid-1300s and the nave was re-roofed in the 15th Century.

It remained pretty much this way until the west porch was added in 1812.

The Church is dedicated to St Margaret – and a window bears a picture of St Margaret of Scotland. However, when the church was built she was not a saint, so it is probable that the church was originally dedicated to St Margaret of Antioch. The church itself is not sure and hedges its bets by revering both St. Margarets!
