The parish church of St Mary & St Clement, Clavering, Essex
This fine medieval church was built on the site of an earlier Saxon church. It is of flint construction with stone dressings to the corners, doorways, windows and battlements. It was begun at the end of the 14th century and continued throughout the 15th. It contains some relics of the earlier church. A large grave slab in the centre of the nave aisle, the font, and an effigy of a knight in the North aisle. It is not known of whom it represents, but by the style of his armour he was of an important noble family, probably that which in 1300 built the imposing manor house NW of the churchyard. For pictures of this knight and of the interior please see TL4731 : Effigy of a Knight. Clavering parish church, Essex and TL4731 : Interior of St. Mary & St. Clement's church, Clavering, Essex
