History:
King Canute ordered to be built, St Andrew's, "a church built of lime and stone for the souls of those slain in the Battle" (of Assandune 1016). It was dedicated in 1020 at a ceremony at which King Canute and his officers attended. This battle was the decisive battle for the throne of England. Much of the church is now a 13C rebuild with a 14C tower. The rubble walls contain Roman tiles and there are Saxon timbers in the tower.
The peaceful churchyard has extensive views over the Crouch valley; to Canewdon Church and to Southend; and on a clear day the wartime Thames Estuary Forts and the windfarm off the Kent coast.
The church is open every afternoon 2-4pm except Sundays from Easter to end of September when stewards are in attendance and will offer information, answer questions and even offer tea and biscuits.
