St John the Evangelist Churchyard, Havering (also known as The Church on the Green, Havering Atte Bower Parish Church)7411

Brief Description

The parish church of St John the Evangelist faces Havering Village Green, and is built on the site of a 12th-century church of St Mary's, formerly one of the Palace chapels. The churchyard has a number of mature trees and is enclosed by a low wall. The oldest among the graves is that of Thomas Cheek (d.1688), Lieutenant of the Tower of London and owner of nearby Pyrgo Park.


Havering-Atte-Bower, once the location of the Palace of Havering used by royalty from pre-Norman Conquest until 1638, was one of three parishes within the Royal Manor and Liberty of Havering.
