“An unspoiled church in a peaceful setting”

Our secluded church at the end of a country lane is surrounded by fields outside the tiny village of Tilbury-juxta-Clare. It is an idyllic location that draws the community together for friendship and worship in an unspoilt haven among the 14th century paintings and historical architecture.
Described as “exceedingly picturesque”, St Margaret’s Church was once part of the De Vere estate. Built from East Anglian flint rubble and dressed stone, the west tower was added in the 16th century and built of Tudor brick.
The church is surrounded by its tree-lined churchyard in the fields on the north side of the village. It is situated at the end of a long track off a small road, opposite the war memorial, that leads from Clare Road towards Ashen.
