Appeal on behalf of the Restoration Fund of Hadstock Parish Church, Essex by the Rt. Rev. F. D. V. Narborough , Bishop of Colchester
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The greater part of the present parish church of St. Botolph, Hadstock, Essex, was built about forty years before the Norman Conquest, and the main door dates from the same period. The church is cruciform (cross-shaped) with transepts, and the Saxon columns and capitals are of rare design and ornamenta-tion. A piece of human skin found under the iron-work of the main door is now in the Saffron Welden Museum. The Royal Commission on Historica! Monuments in the volume on Nort'h-West Essex, states: ' It is possibly the Minster erected by Canute in 1020 to commemorate his victory over Edmund Ironside at Assandun (Ashdon is the adjoining parish on the South-East).'
The present tower (fifteenth century) at the wesrt end of the church is badly in need of repair and is a menace to the whole building.

Mr. Crawley had won a great victory over the Bishop and Mrs. Proudie, and had clearly proved his right to continue in charge of his parish while awaiting his trial for theft at the Barchesier Assizes, if he was so minded. But Mrs. Proudie, determined not to be put down by a mere perpetual curate, and one suspected of crime, has returned to the attack and has induced the Bishop to arrange for a commission to be appointed under the Rural Dean, Doctor Tempest, to enquire into Mr. Crawley's conduct.
Major Grantly. the Archdeacon's son, has been over to Hogglestock parsonage and proposed to Grace Crawley-but Grace has refused his proposal, declaring that she can love no man while her father is under such a terrible cloud.
Mr. Crawley, having so far refused to take any legal advice, has now decided to consult his wife's cousin, Mr. Toogood, an attorney of Gray's Inn. London.
