St Mary's, Mundon, Essex
St Mary's is a redundant church in a deserted village that was clawed back from the brink of demolition by a little charity called the Friends of Friendless Churches. It's a medieval church on a squelching salt marsh in front of a furze of petrified oaks. Structural issues are rife, hence the mass of bracing timbers. It's a place that survived despite the odds.
