Looking south along High Street with the church tower and spire just showing over the roof tops.

This is a pretty village with many ancient buildings many of them warped with age - look at the ridge on the roof of the pink house at the far end.

  Photograph of Stebbing, Essex, England   The church of St. Mary the Virgin, Stebbing.

The 14th century church, seen behind a cottage from outside the Old Red Lion, belonged originally to the Knights Hospitallers of St. John.
