All Saint's Feering

Although the porch and south front of All Saints, Feering was rebuilt in brick around 1500 AD the main body of the church dates back to 13th century when it must have replaced a Norman nave since the parish once belonged to Edward the Confessor.

The stone altar, which was built in 1961 by two parishioners, contains fragments from the ruins of Coggeshall Abbey, Walsingham Abbey and Colne Priory.

 

In the niche over the porch door is a terra cotta bas-relief of Our Lady and the Holy Child designed by the sculptress Stella Ling in 1985.

The altar piece, a painting by John Constable showing the risen Christ was given to the church in 1965 but this has since been replaced by a copy, the original may now be seen in St Mary the Virgin, Dedham.

The church contains many beautiful carvings in both wood and stone.
