Brentwood: Edwardian Postcards (10)

“The Church of St Thomas of Canterbury, which stood a short distance to the east of the ancient chapel of St Osyth, was entirely rebuilt in 1882-3 at a cost of £22,000. This is a building of flint and pebble with stone dressings in the Early English style and has a tower and spire added in 1886 with a clock and eight bells”. [Clunn, p151]
