Thorrington, Essex

The village of Thorrington is today arranged in mostly ribbon form along three roads which intersect to form a sinuous approximately equilateral 1km triangle, at approximately 27m OD. The medieval church lies adjacent to Thorrington Hall to the south east of the village but these are isolated from the present village by more than 500m. The first edition Ordnance Survey map shows much of the present settlement to be of recent origin, with Thorrington in the 19th century comprising a dozen or so scattered farms and a few small isolated clusters of cottages.
