Remains of St Mary and All Saints, Old Church Lane, Thundridge - East Hertfordshire

The church was demolished in 1853; only the separately listed three-stage tower (see separate entry for remains of old church tower) remains substantially above ground within the scheduled churchyard and adjacent manorial moated site. The rest of the church (demolished to foundation level) and the churchyard wall are scheduled and considered to be structurally at risk. Buried archaeological remains are also considered to be at risk from vandalism and anti-social behaviour. Long-term management remains a problem to avoid repetition of vandalism.
