St Michael, Pitsea Church - 


The shape of the roof can still be seen on the east side of 
the tower. The loss of the main church structure is not as catastrophic as the 
loss of the tower would have been. The small church was rebuilt in 1871, by Sir 
Arthur Blomfield. For more pictures of this church, including some when the 
church was still intact, and one of the church slowly becoming rubble, visit the 
St Michael's, Pitsea pages on the excellent
Basildon History Online 
website. There is also an interesting recount of some archaeological 
excavations on this site, courtesy of

The Rochford Hundred Field Archaeology Group (link not working at time of 
migration from my old site).
