Latchingdon and Snoreham

Latchingdon and Snoreham is a village in Essex, on the Dengie peninsula and 5 miles from Maldon.

The odd name comes from the fact that the tiny village of Snoreham was swallowed up by Latchingdon centuries ago.

St. Michael`s Old Church stands on a hilltop, and consists of just the nave and porch.

The newer church was built in 1857.

Snoreham is now represented by Snoreham Hall, where an annual sermon used to be preached under a tree.

Uleham`s Farm represents another lost village, of Uleham.
