60. LITTLE HENNY. (B.a.)

(O.S. 6 in. xii. N.E.)

Little Henny is a very small parish 5 m. N.N.E. of Halstead.


(1). Foundations of the former parish church, 70 yards E.S.E. of the Ryes, are much overgrown, but appear to indicate a small rectangular building. In it is a semi-octagonal bowl, probably of a stoup.



(2). Cottage, about 300 yards W. of (1), is of two storeys, timber-framed and plastered; the roofs are thatched. It was built probably in the 17th century and has exposed ceiling-beams.
