CHURCH OF ST LAURENCE

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  WORMLEY PRIORY CELL, ST LAURENCES CHURCH
DESCRIPTION + /

A parish church, historically thought to have been a cell of Waltham Abbey in the Medieval period. The church includes a 12th century nave with a Norman door and window, and 15th century windows. There are some Victorian alterations and additions: the chancel was restored between 1843-4. The south aisle and porch added 1862 by J Clarke. The building has roughcast on the walls, with stone dressings, flint and stone dressings on the south side. The roof is tiled. The font is late Saxon or Norman. The church was granted to Waltham Abbey some time after 1177, and became a cell of that abbey until circa 1510. Thus it is thought that the cell was alienated from the Abbey before the supression of the Abbey during the Reformation. Saxon or Norman font.
