St Clement, Leigh-on-Sea Church - St Clement's church is best approached from Church Hill. It is 
a steep climb, but is well worth it as the church suddenly appears from between 
the trees. Though I doubt this view is possible when that tree is somewhat 
leafier.
The C15 west tower is diagonally buttressed. It has 
battlements, and the raised stair turret can clearly be seen in this picture. 
The tower has a west door, and a three-light west window.

St Clement, Leigh-on-Sea Church - The tower is around 80ft in height, and is constructed from 
Kentish ragstone.

Internal Images

St Clement, Leigh-on-Sea Church - Unfortunately St Clement's was closed when I visited. There 
was, however, a lot of noise coming from the tower. It seems that some workmen 
were busy up there. They had left the west door under the tower unlocked, so I 
was able to take this picture through the glass of the inner locked doors. The 
nave and north aisle are C15, whereas the chancel and south aisle were C19 
additions.

Glass Images

St Clement, Leigh-on-Sea Church - This glass represents The Crucifixion. Unfortunately taken 
from quite some distance, and through glass, so image quality is not as good as 
I would have liked.
