Colchester St Botolph
". . .The living of St. Botolph's is a perpetual curacy, united to the rectory of All Saints'; the church has been in ruins since the siege in 1648, exhibiting indications of its original magnificence, and of the antiquity of its style, which appears to have been the early Norman, and of the same date as the neighbouring priory; it was built with bricks of extraordinary hardness, supposed to have been taken from the Roman station; in the interior are several plain massive piers and circular arches, and part of the arches of the triforium is remaining; the west front has a central doorway, on the south side of which is a deeply receding Norman arch; over these are two series of intersecting arches. . ."
