Former church, Chignall St. James
Former church, Chignall St. James
Now a house, although a public footpath still passes through the churchyard. When examining the churchyard about 30 years ago when the building was still a church, I came across the grave of Robert Miller Christy F.L.S. (1861-1928). This Victorian gentleman wrote in learned journals on an extraordinary range of subjects, from Essex Roman roads (a lot of speculation), to pin-eyed and thrum-eyed Primroses (a classic in botanical circles), to his hearing of gunfire in France from his house in Chignall St. James during the Great War.
