Hi PaulHP, Nice photograph. I can't find Greenstead Juxta Ongar on my map. Could you please tell me where abouts this is exactly ? Have you seen the plaque in Greenstead Green church ? This village is next to Earls Colne.

Sorry in the delay in answering the church is on the outskirts of Ongar. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greensted_Church

Haven't been out Earl's Colne way for quite a while, will have a look next time I'm passing.

Here's my photo from Wednesday 15th May, quite easy to miss and quite small, when you go in the church its on the wall on your left.
