14th August 1942

The removal of iron railings in St Mary’s Churchyard is a very great improvement.  This churchyard is the most beautiful in the town, although the church is probably the most ugly.  Had the Queen Anne church not been destroyed in 1871 it would have been one of the town’s finest monuments, set in a lovely spot.

Dull tonight, but no rain.

St Mary's Church was rebuilt in 1872 and is a redundant church today, which houses Colchester Arts Centre. CP
