South east view of St Marys, the fine parish church of High Easter in Essex. There are two 'Easter' parishes in Essex, and High Easter, was the more important of the two. The church is a Norman one however it has many Roman tiles within its brickwork as quoins or set in a herring bone pattern to form horizontal bands. The flint tower was added in the 15th century and in the 16th century the nave wall was raised and the old steep pitched roof was replaced by a more elaborate flat pitched roof.
