Shellow Bowells: Church Now House Near Willingale

A recent visitor to the blackmorehistory site typed ‘church now house near Willingale’. The place he was looking for was Shellow Bowells (pronounced ‘bowls’) which is a small hamlet to the north of Willingale. Its church, once dedicated to St Peter, “was rebuilt in brick in 1754” (according to the Little Guide. Essex. 1909) but was deconsecrated and is now a house. For a picture of the building follow the link to History House:
