of a mile from the centre of the village. The Church is accessed via Church Lane, a turning off the High Street adjacent to Debden's C of E Primary School. Adequate parking is available outside the churchyard.

The Church boasts a number of interesting features, among which is a Codestone Font and a
14th century iron clad chest.
