St Nicholas, Great Wakering Church - The nave of the church is Early Norman. This is demonstrated by the blocked N 
window. Just visible is one of the Early Norman flat broad pilaster buttresses 
at the base of the tower, although the upper parts of the tower are later 
Norman, a fact borne out by the blocked Norman W window visible from inside the 
nave. The upper broach spire is C15 or later.

St Nicholas, Great Wakering Church - From Pevsner: "The most singular feature of this church is 
the two-storeyed C15 W porch added to the Norman W tower. This is an Early Saxon 
motif, and one wonders what can have been the reason for introducing it here? 
Older foundations, or simply some obstacle in the way of a two-storeyed S 
porch?"
