To coincide with the 400th anniversary celebrations of the rededication in 1614 of St Michael's Church, Theydon Mount, a new colour Guide has just been published It is the work of local historian Anne Padfield, with photographs taken by Cindy Russell.
Anne Padfield was very much the key planner of the weekend's events which included an historical exhibition of the church on Saturday, with the High Country History Group present with a stand, followed in the evening with a presentation in words and music of the life and times of Theydon Mount. On Sunday the Rt. Revd. Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford, led the service. All concluded with the cutting of a cake and celebratory drink.
'St Michael's Church. Theydon Mount. A History and Guide' is available, priced £3.00.
