St. Andrews church.  Hornchurch, Essex
St. Andrews church. Hornchurch, Essex
There has been a church on this site since the 12th century, with the tower and North porch added in the 15th. High on the wall at the Eastern end of the church is the stone effigy of a bull's head with a magnificent pair of copper horns. These were known to exist as far back as 1222 when the first written reference to the church mentions the "monasterium cornutum" or horned church at Havering. It seems logical that this is how the village got its name. See TQ5486 : St Andrews Church, Hornchurch, Essex.
