Church Rd, Layer de la Haye, Colchester CO2 0EW, UK – 01206 738759
Church dates from the early C12th and the tower held 5 bells in a medieval oak bell frame. The church was damaged in the Essex earthquake of 1884 and the bells silenced. The frame was preserved and a new ringing chamber installed to house the 5 refurbished bells and a new one cast in memory of a past master of the Essex Assoc of Change Ringers. The church is not open for casual visitors.

Beautiful Tudor church, a rebuild of the original Medieval one. Contains some amazing tombs of the Marney family.
Church was re-built from the foundations early in the C16th and partially renovated in 1870. Some interesting monuments & tombs from C14th relating to the Marney family. Church is normally open and worth a visit especially if visiting the Layer Marney Tower.
