St Mary the Virgin, Layer Marney

You will find information here about our services, how to contact the vicar about weddings, baptisms or funerals and the village community events at Layer Marney Tower and how to find out about the Friends of Layer Marney. 

The parish of St Mary the Virgin, Layer Marney, is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. The Diocese of Chelmsford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs.
