St Mary the Virgin, Copford, Essex

Apologies for the lack of updates to the blog, I hope to get better at this again now I am getting my work-life balance in order!
Not so much as a ChurchCrawl, rather just a one-off visit on the way to a football match in Colchester!
The Alma in the village is an honest pub, not a restaurant, and was a delight to find. Real Ale, a small but traditional menu of British cuisine, sandwiches and jacket potatos, all obviously "home-made" rather than massed produced bought-in for the microwave. A car-load of strangers were duly welcomed by landlady and
locals alike, and were given directions to the church which is between mainroad horrible Copford and Copford Green, the pretty village centre.
The church was much larger than it looks in photographs, which was a surprise. For my friends, the real surprise was inside.
