Great Holland All Saints


The Parish

The parish of Great Holland is located in northeastern Essex, indeed it forms part of Essex's North Sea coast. Great Holland is located about 3 miles northeast of the seaside resort of Clacton on Sea. Great Holland sits astride the B1032 road which heads northeastwards from Clacton on Sea to Kirby le Soken. Great Holland is a large compact village mainly built about the crossroads of the B1032 with a pair of minor lanes heading east and west respectively. This is an extremely low-lying area, largely reclaimed from the sea or defended from encroachments by raised sea banks. At the time of this transcript this would have been an area dominated by cattle grazing on the salt marshes, nowadays a little arable occurs on slightly higher ground. Great Holland sits on higher ground, a former peninsular, at about 20 metres above sea level, but land falls to the west almost to sea level itself. The drainage heads southwards through the Holland Brook where sluices guide it into the North Sea at Holland Haven, Today much of the coastal area of the parish is nature reserve or country park. The parish is a fairly typical size for Essex and just over 2,000 acres and it supported almost 500 parishioners. In Domesday times Great Holland was enumerated with its smaller neighbour Little Holland and supported 14 ploughs plus pastures, meadows and woodland; the land was split between two landholders Walter of Douai and Count Eustace of Boulogne obviously French associates of the Conqueror.

The Church

All Saints' church is located close to the hall at the eastern end of Great Holland in an elevated position overlooking the sea. The building is largely a result of a Victorian rebuild, only the tower remains of an earlier structure and that is either late 16th or early 17th century. Pevsner is clearly unimpressed as he described the Victorian work as "competent and dull". The church is reached, appropriately enough, along Church Street where at its eastern end a small parking area is present. A hip-height flint & brick wall borders the churchyard and access is through a rather splendid lychgate with a broad tiled roof. The graveyard is bordered with trees but these do not interfere with photographic angles.
