Remembrance Sunday took a rather different form this year, as no church services were allowed.

However Stondon Massey church did stream a lovely remembrance service on their facebook page.

Welcome To The Parish Of Stondon Massey

Where is Stondon Massey?

Stondon Massey is a small rural parish within Brentwood Borough. The population is currently 727.

Why is the village called Stondon Massey?

Stondon means ‘stone hill’, a Saxon settlement was established near to the site of the 12th Century church of St Peter’s & St Paul’s. A low gravel hill was known as a ‘down’.

Hence the name ‘Stondon’.

‘Massey’ is derived from Serlo de Marci, a Norman knight who lived in Ongar.

The main part of the village is now just over a mile to the south of the church probably due to the plague of 1350.
