Dedham, Essex, England
The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Dedham.
This church was built in the 15th Century with money provided by local cloth manufacturer Thomas Webbe. Building was started in the same year that Columbus discovered America.
The tower is particularly imposing for a church of this size and featured in a number of Constable's paintings.
