North End in Great Waltham parish
"North End is a small village at the ‘north end’ of the large parish of Great Waltham. . . In past times, the village consisted of little other than a settlement of farms and associated minor dwellings, many of which date back to mediaeval times. This is supported by finds of early medieval pottery in the village. The village is clearly shown as a settlement on the Andre and Chapman map of 1777. . . North End does not have its own church but it does have a small chapel of ease, Blackchapel, which is grade 1 listed and of outstanding national historical interest, particularly as it has an attached priest’s house. Mentioned in 1347 as a local landmark, the present mediaeval timber framed building dates from the 14th century. It was enlarged and refurbished in the 18th century but the interior remains humble, early Georgian with box pews and a 3-decker pulpit." [North End Village Design Statement (2007)]
