St. Lawrence Church, Eastwood (boulder inside church), EASTWOOD, Southend District, TQ86168884, Potential Local Geological Site

show OS map    

Between the pews and poking through the floorboards inside St. Lawrence Church is a 65 centimetre (2 foot) long sarsen stone. 'Pagan' stones were often incorporated into the foundations of churches but it is very unusual for one to be in such a conspicuous position inside the building. This stone, like the similar one in the wall of Hadleigh Church, is no doubt derived from the high level Medway gravels that cap the hill at Hadleigh and, therefore, must have originated in Kent.

Regrettably, at the time of writing, St. Lawrence Church is threatened with demolition to make way for an extension to Southend Airport.
