The church of St Mary th Virgin was restored in 1860, it is a brick building, consisting of chancel and nave the axis of which are noticeably divergent. The register, which dates from the year 1539, is  in excellent preservation, and is continued without break to the present time: there is also a curious list of “Briefs”, dating from 1709 to 1768.

A National school and schoolhouse was built by the late rector. The County Lunatic Asylum, capable of holding 8000 patients, in the adjoining parish of South Weald, is about half a mile from Christ Church.
