St Laurence Church, Eastwood
St Laurence Church, Eastwood
This picture shows St Laurence Church, Eastwood. Parts of the building date back to the 12th century with some recycled roman bricks being used in the construction. The church stands inside the ATC controlled area of Southend Airport, a few yards from the end of the main runway. To the left of the picture can be seen the barriers that close off the road when a large aircraft is due to land. The red sign outside the church is not for the parish notices it tells motorists, “for your own safety if the barriers are down do not move your car”. It has been suggested that the church could be pulled down and reconstructed 100 yards away to facilitate airport expansion. To find out more see LinkExternal link
