Harlow: Ancient & Modern (5)
St Mary, Latton, stands on a slight hill by the side of First Avenue. Originally it stood near to Mark Hall which was demolished during the twentieth century. Although once ravaged by fire the church contains a small chapel and altar tomb to Peter Ardene. There are also magnificent brasses to other members of the Ardene family, and to Frances Frankelin (1604). An ancient altar cloth to the Altham family is in the neighbouring Harlow Museum.
