St. Andrews Church (Halstead)

St. Andrews is the parish church of the little Essex market town of Halstead, not far from the border with Suffolk.

It stands at the staggered crossroads at the centre of the town, overlooking the steep High Street which leads down to the River Colne.

St. Andrews is a mediaeval church, sating back to the 14th century, although the tower was rebuilt in 1850. The octagonal font is in the Perpendicular style, and has decorations featuring flowers and shields.

There is a fine collection of monuments to the powerful Bourchier family, the earliest of which dates from about 1300.
