Sitting on the boundary between two houses in Cheapside, a short way from its replacement the Union Chapel built in 1902. This small wooden chapel was built in the late 19th century and after replacement was used as a meeting room and hall, known locally as The Cabin. In 1988 it was sold to the two adjoining properties called Little Thatch and Oakwood. At the time of my visit in early September 2018 it was undergoing reconstruction. It is difficult to determine how much of the original building remains. The bottom right image shows the reconstructed building in January 2019.
In remote north east Herts. The tower is 12th century, the chancel and transepts 13th century. Restoration in 1869-72 was by William Butterfield. The church has an unusual Norman “mermen” font. The memorial window to pilots from the nearby USAF airfield is by Patrick Reyntiens.
