mending sails (Laurence Lee, 1977)

All Saints, Maldon, Essex


The lovely town of Maldon has three parish churches surviving from medieval times, two of which remain in use today. All Saints is on the High Street, the main parish church of the town. A big, urban church which is noteworthy for having a triangular tower, unique in England. Coupled with the low ceilinged but wide nave, it makes for some very odd views westwards inside. The best thing about the church from my point of view is the great quantity of early 20th Century glass, some by GER Smith and Laurence Lee. Several people popped in for a few moments while I was in there, and in general this feels like a church which which is well-used and well-loved.
