40. HAVERING ATTE BOWER. (C.d.)

(O.S. 6 in. lxvi. N.W.)

Havering atte Bower is a small parish adjoining Romford Rural on the N.

Ecclesiastical

(1). Parish Church of St. John the Evangelist was entirely re-built in 1878. The former church formed part of the buildings of Havering Palace. The modern church contains from the old building the following:—

Fittings—Font: octagonal, tapering bowl of Purbeck marble, each face with two round-headed panels, formerly painted, late 12th-century. Floor-slabs: In N. aisle—(1) to Thomas Cheek, 1688, Lieutenant of the Tower; (2) to Henry, son of Thomas Cheek, 168–.

Condition—Good, re-built.

Secular

(2). Stocks and Whipping Post (Plate p. 258), on the Green, S.E. of the church. The Stocks are for two persons; the Whipping Post, at one end, has lost its ironwork except the staple. The woodwork is probably of late 17th or early 18th-century date.

Condition—Good.

(3). Terraces, at Pyrgo Park, ¾ m. N.E. of the church. They are probably the remains of the lay-out of the former gardens.

Condition—Good.
