Location and General Description

Located in the south of Essex, a very brief visit gave the impression of a flat area that's current appearance owes a lot to 20th C growth.

In the graveyard is a square grave surround with the inscription "In loving memory of Mary Ann SCOTT died 23rd December 1932 aged 81 years also of John SCOTT died 6th January 1916 aged 67 years." (capitalization is mine). Mary was the daughter of  John KIRBY of Benfleet (1815-1876)
